Tony Gilroy Re-Writes “Red Dawn”

“Michael Clayton” and “Duplicity” writer/director Tony Gilroy is set to rewrite MGM’s remake of the 80’s cult classic “Red Dawn” reports Latino Review.

The original John Milius classic followed the scrappy insurgency of a group of Midwestern teenagers who take on their high school mascot name as a rallying cry of resistance against Soviet and Cuban forces that have invaded the US.

Gilroy, who also penned the Jason Bourne series, performed a similar re-write job on Universal’s recent US film remake of British mini-series “State of Play”.
