Doing a remake of a classic cult movie can be risky business especially if it is made during the lifetime of the original fans. The original RED DAWN movie was released in 1984 starring Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Lea Thompson, Jennifer Grey, C. Thomas Howell, Darren Dalton, Brad Savage and Powers Booth. It was a box office smash and now in 2012 comes the re-make starring Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck, Josh Hutcherson, Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Connor Cruise and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. This time around instead of the Russians coming, the North Koreans invade. As the soldiers are dropping out of the sky and pulling up in the tanks, a small group of students from the same high school evades capture and hold up in the woods where they form an insurgent fighting group which they named “The Wolverines” taken from their high school mascot.

Palicki may best be known as town sex vixen Tyra Collette on the top rated NBC drama “Friday Night Lights.”
Palicki will also star as “Lady Jaye’ in the much anticipated “G.I. Joe Retaliation” with Channing Tatum, Bruce Willis and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson which will be released in 2013.
Peck has made
a seamless transition from his child star acting days from Nickelodeon’s
“Drake & Josh”
to adult leading man with roles in films like “The Wackness,” “Mean Creak,” the voice over character of Sparks in “Ice Age” and others.

When we got the two together to talk about the re-make Of “Red Dawn,” the excitement in the air was titillating. For Palicki, how was the transition from being the sexually loose town vixen to becoming an ass kicking soldier?She laughs, “Its fun. I’m an actor. To be know as a hooker by night and bad ass by day, its pretty cool.” The cast had to endure a real military style boot camp to prepare for this film. What was Palicki’s experience like? Her eyes light up, “A lot of us didn’t know each other before this and we all kind of show up at 6 o’clock in the morning in the middle of nowhere in the valley at this boot camp not knowing what to expect. And we all had the exact same experience. We all had to start from scratch and we pretty much became the Wolverines because the tactical training is how we became friends.”
