    Default Red Dawn 2012

    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Tom Cruise's son is among the newest Wolverines to join the remake of "Red Dawn," the 1984 action movie about a group of teenagers who form an insurgency when their town is invaded -- this time by Chinese and Russian soldiers.

    Connor Cruise, 14, will join fellow new recruits Josh Hutcherson, Isabel Lucas and Edwin Hodge in the MGM/UA project. Already cast are Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck and Adrianne Palicki.

    Cruise is playing Daryl, the mayor's son and best friend of tech geek Robert (Hutcherson, in the role originated by C. Thomas Howell).


    Lucas is Erica, head cheerleader and the Peck character's girlfriend whom he desperately hopes to spring from an internment camp. Lea Thompson played the character in the original. Hodge will play Danny, the coolest kid in school and star wide receiver who helps establish the resistance.

    The young cast heads off in a few weeks for military training in an undisclosed location. Shooting will then begin in Detroit for a September 24, 2010 release. Dan Bradley is directing

    Cruise debuted in December as the young Will Smith character in "Seven Pounds." Hutcherson starred in "Journey to the Center of the Earth" and "Bridge to Terabithia." Lucas recently appeared in "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." Hodge has a recurring role on Fox's "Mental" and recently appeared in the feature "All the Boys Love Mandy Lane."

    The original was great but seems so dated. Hopefully, they do the movie justice.

    THAT is Tom Cruise's kid? I knew he and Will Smith were pals, but damn, that kid looks just like a 9 yr old Fresh Prince.

    He was adopted. Don't you know that celebrities now go to 3rd world countries to buy a kid or 3 (ie Angelina Jolie and Madonna).


    As for the movie... wtf, the taliban gonna invade the US? This is stupid.

    Not exactly. Kidman had had several miscarriages and she and Cruise decided to adopt instead of going through another miscarriage. Accusing them of adopting for accessories in this instance is a little over the top.

    they went to the third world and brought a baby back...or they got one from one of the third world baby shops here in the states where they import them for folks who don't like flies and contracting dysentary when they are baby shopping.

    They could just as easily gotten a surrogate mother or adopted a white baby like millions of people do who DON'T want to attract attention to how benevolent and post-racial they are. People pick up third world babies so the world can see how enlightened they are, how decent hearted they are because they get poor little third world babies who would otherwise die before they're 20 or end up working in a sweat shop.

    it's ridiculous.

    Angelina and Madonna went to the third world. If I recall, and I think I am right, Tom and Nicole didn't adopt from the third world. They just adopted a kid because they were having difficulties conceiving. (Actually 2) Beyond that, who cares where they adopt from. I understand making a big deal about people adopting babies from third world countries as accessories, but if a couple has difficulty conceiving and want to have a family, who the hell are we to judge them for adopting a kid from a currently shitty existence to give them a better life.
