Dan Bradley is directing this film.
Apparently, Gilroy turned in a 107 page draft that was "dated 06-01-09." The initial remake was written by Carl Ellsworth and Jeremy Passmore.
The original Red Dawn was the Cold War brainchild of writer-director John Milius, who devised a World War III invasion of America by the Soviets and Cubans. The film followed the scrappy insurgency of a group of Midwestern teenagers who take on their high school mascot name -- "Wolverines!" -- as a rallying cry of resistance.
Red Dawn will start shooting in September with a planned release date of Sept. 24, 2010.
