Connor Cruise to Follow In Tom's Footsteps
The film follows a group of small-town teenagers who rise up to battle invading Russian (and in the remake, Chinese) soldiers.
Connor Cruise – who made his big screen debut in 2008 as the young Will Smith in “Seven Pounds” — will play Daryl, the son of the town’s mayor.
Filming is slated to begin next month in Detroit, after the group of young actors undergoes first military training in the coming weeks. The “Red Dawn” remake is scheduled to hit theaters on September 24, 2010.
