    One can hope but I doubt it will be made and if it was it would probably make the Wolverines the bad guys.

    Hope I'm wrong!

    Geez, enough with the remakes already. Red Dawn is a cult classic. I sure wish those idiots in Hollywood would just leave stuff like that alone.

    But maybe that's just me...

    When you don't have any ideas of your own.

    Swipe someone elses.

    I hate remakes.

    The best survivalist/SHTF movie of all time is The Postman with Kevin Costner. Got a lot of bad reviews, and it's very long, but it has a good message and also a realistic attitude towards survival in a world gone awry - strength is in numbers, and the lone wolf roaming around by himself is just going to get picked off.

    There's no one in Hollywood with an imagination anymore....well, except the South Park guys. :D

    They just announced the Director and writer on the 9th. I never pay much attention to these announcements, they don't even have a working draft of a script yet. A lot can happen before actual filming starts. There are hundreds of originals and remakes shelved before filming starts.

    Good noises to hear. What made Red Dawn so cool was that it was slightly plausible, gave it a "this could happen to you" feel.

    The scenario holds a fascination to many. Look at the popularity of SHTF and survival forums? Being there and living it may be a different story. Bring 'em on!

    If you don't like re-makes, don't watch it. I say, only good can come from a new SHTF, gunfighting movie. :p

    Eh, they'll screw it up by giving Tom "crazy" Cruise the lead, (or worse, George Clooney just to really make us hate it :barf:), and have his doing summersaults out of Soviet helocopters onto his getaway horse,and then riding away with the girl (whom he'll get of course, she wont have the hots for some lousy Col.) , who will be played by Jodie Foster.

    And as mentioned, the US , if not the Wolverines,will come out looking like the bad guys for the most part, somehow

    Oh, and when is the release date? If it happens to coincide with an Obama-nation administration, then gun shops are gonna see rifles sales like they haven't seen in decades! :)

    Hollywood lost all its imagination when Imaginationland got attacked by ManBearPig (if you watch south park you'll know) :)

    They should rehack Chuck Norris in Invasion USA...

    (IMHO, this is the film that pretty much guaranteed the original AWB).

    War, like life, is not a movie, especially when your enemies don't watch the same movies, and don't buy into the same tired narratives.

    They're redoing RoboCop???? The nerve of them. They'll use CGI for everything and make it look like crap. They probably won't make the future quite so dystopian either. It'll probably have global warming as a plotline as well.

    The problem I have with such movies is the military ridiculousness of the premise. No conceptualization of how difficult a real invasion would be as compared to a terrorist attack.

    Only invaders like the ID4 aliens or WoW tripods have the logistics. The latter movie stunk though.

    I know the available force levels in the world and the rest of the world would be hard put to get one division to our shores.

    The best part of War Of The Worlds was that the last car on earth that still ran was a '90 something Dodge Caravan!! They don't run when aliens aren't trying to destroy the planet!
