So, this was apparently first announced way back in 2007, but Sony Screen Gems *spit* is remaking Straw Dogs. I did not know this. The Hollywood Reporter, um, reports that James Marsden of X-Men and Superman Returns fame has been cast in the lead role, played by Dustin Hoffman in the original film.
He seems too much of a pretty-boy to play the part, but who knows, they might rough him up a bit. The director, Rod Lurie, is, according to IMDb, a 'critic-turned-director'. He's not French, so I'm not getting my hopes up that he'll be any good.
