Neal McDonough is taking on the horror/thriller, The Hitcher for Rogue Pictures.

The film is the remake of the 1986 horror film; Dave Meyers is directing. The Hollywood Reporter says he will play a career lawman who tries to aid two college students (Sophia Bush, Zach Knighton). The pair are being terrorized by a murderous hitchhiker.
