The final touches are being put on a deal between FilmDistrict and MGM for the former to acquire the rights from the latter for Red Dawn, the remake of the 1984 film of the same title, now that the film has been repackaged in such a way that won’t anger the Chinese.

The original Red Dawn featured the Soviet Union as its antagonist, and the remake was supposed to be a modern update, in which the bad guy is China. Our Eastern allies weren’t too pleased with the move, and so the producers behind the movie went back and changed the Chinese aspects to be North Korean.

In the remake, a group of teens will fight off the North Koreans from invading their neighborhood. Chris Hemsworth, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Hutcherson, and Josh Peck are starring as the hot teenagers in what will surely be a controversial film, if nothing else.

I’m mostly looking forward to this movie for Josh Hutcherson, who’s going to rise to Robert Pattinson levels of fame after the release of The Hunger Games this fall. Between his role in Hunger Games opposite of Liam Hemsworth and Red Dawn opposite of Chris Hemsworth, I can only assume that he is like a member of the Hemsworth family now.

Are you ready for a remake of Red Dawn?
