Has Tony Gilroy Been Tinkering with the RED DAWN Screenplay?

     June 17, 2009

red_dawn_movie_image__2_.jpgYesterday brought news that Josh Peck and Adrianne Palicki had been added to the cast of “Red Dawn”.  MGM’s remake of their own, now classic, 1980s Cold War/teen action movie is being directed by Dan Bradley from a script by Carl Ellsworth and Jeremy Passmore.  Or is it?  Latino Review is reporting that a rewrite for “Red Dawn” has been turned in by none other than Tony Gilroy.  Gilroy, in case you’re unfamiliar, wrote all of the Jason Bourne films as well as writing and directing “Michael Clayton” and the recent “Duplicity”.  He’s a name of note, is my point.  LR says that Gilroy turned in a 107 page draft of “Red Dawn” dated June 1st, 2009.  This story has yet to be confirmed in any way – but if it is indeed true it gives me hope that this time around, when the Wolverines battle their “Red Dawn”, they are going to have better dialogue than… well, better than Hugh Jackman had in “Wolverine” at any rate!
