Although things are looking up for MGM with Spyglass Entertainment possibly coming on board to manage the studio once the more than 100 creditors forgive the debt for equity, it hasn't stopped the studio from pushing back it's projects. There's still no official green light for The Hobbit films and the James Bond 23 producers are waiting it out before moving on with the production. While it had been expected, MGM's Red Dawn remake that was scheduled for a November 26 release has now been pushed back to a date to be determined. The movie stars Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck, Josh Hutcherson, Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Connor Cruise and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. We'll also have to wait longer on Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon's The Cabin in the Woods , which had been set for a »
To begin, Los Angeles Times reporter Geoff Boucher says he has an interview with Inception director Christopher Nolan this weekend and plans on asking him about Batman 3 which he says "starts shooting in March" for a July 20, 2012 release. This makes sense considering The Dark Knight began shooting around April 2007 for its July 18, 2008 release. Nolan also recently confirmed The Joker will not be recast or in the new movie, which I would hope most of you already figured out for yourself.
The sequel train continues as Steven Zeitchik reports, also from the Los Angeles Times, that Warner Bros. and producer Legendary Pictures have been meeting with directors, with an eye to shoot Clash of the Titans 2 as early as January. Jonathan Liebesman (Darkness Falls) is reportedly the name that has bubbled to the top of the pile to direct. Zeitchik says original director, Louis Leterrier, opted not to direct the follow-up, »

The upcoming remake of the 1984 movie "Red Dawn" will make both the Chinese and the Russians as the enemies. This decision has drawn harsh criticism from one of the leading Chinese newspapers two days in a row. "Us re-shoots Cold War movie to demonize China" and "American movie plants hostile seeds against China," read the editorials in the Beijing-based Global Times. China is known for censoring movies that make the country seem bad. "Red Dawn" will obviously not be shown in Chinese theaters, but it's not the only thing that the country is worried about. As one commentary said: "Despite the world's focus on Us-China relations, China can still feel Us distrust and fear, especially among its people." "Red Dawn" stars Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Jeffrey Dean Morgan an Connor Cruise, and is scheduled to hit theaters on November 24th. »
Obviously and perhaps understandably not happy about being cast in the roles of villains, China has taken umbrage with the forthcoming remake of the 1984 film Red Dawn, reports ABC News.
In the new movie, both Russia and China are depicted as mortal enemies who invade the United States.
Excerpts of the new Red Dawn script, by Carl Ellsworth and Jeremy Passmore, leaked last weekend on the website The Awl, according to ABC. The excerpts suggest a story in which China's People's Liberation Army — led by Korean-American actor Will Yun Lee as the chief baddie, Captain Lo — invade the Us, and encounter a group of resistance fighters.
For two days in a row, the editorials in the Beijing-based Global Times have harshly criticized the new production, reading: "Us re-shoots Cold War movie to demonize China" and "American movie plants hostile seeds against China".
The editorial asserts that Red Dawn will only serve to propagate mistrust. »
A remake of the 1984 cold war teen action film says much about America's fear of its declining influence in the world
The film was a classic piece of 1980s teen cinema framed against the paranoid geopolitics of the cold war. Red Dawn starred Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen as all-American teens leading an armed resistance movement against Soviet troops who had invaded the Us.
Feeding on Hollywood's recent appetite for recycling old films, Red Dawn is being remade with a handsome new cast. But there is one vital difference: this time the invading communist army that takes over America is Chinese.
The new-look enemy reflects the changes that have swept the world since the fall of the Berlin Wall. First, the Soviet Union no longer exists, thus hampering any plot driven by its invasion of America. Second, a rich vein of paranoia about the rise of Chinese economic might now runs through American politics. »
