Corrected Post: The Red Dawn Remake

I have to keep changing this post.

I gathered from this discussion, in which commenter claims...

Word is that there will be hints in the script that the US is to blame for the war. I really enjoyed the original when I was 16 but if they do this I will NOT see the remake. You hear that producers? You WILL lose audience with this tactic so you'd be better served to leave it out. I mean, come on, putting the "America is to blame" BS in a war movie? You're rich, buy a clue...

However, DrewM. points out this review of the script (or at least the script at a particular time; it might have been, and almost certainly has been, changed by now) which says nothing at all about the US being to "blame" for the invasion. The reason given seems to be that China wants to invade Taiwan (so they invade us first.. .huh?).

There's also a mention that the US is provoking/causing financial crises and distuptions, and I guess the Chinese are pissed off about that.

I can't be too upset about that, because that's, what's the word, true.

Anyway, I've made a total hash of this post. About the only thing I can still stand by is that they are remaking Red Dawn.

Still More: Oil is the cause of the invasion, somehow. This may be the the source of the "we deserved it" rumor:

The cause of the invasion? Oil, of course. There are hints that America is kinda to blame, too. In today’s PC environment, that’s not too much of a surprise.


Having jumped way too prematurely I'll keep further speculations to myself.

Thanks to Vic.

By the way: This is old.
