Rod Lurie has taken to Twitter to share the official poster for his remake of Straw Dogs, which stars James Marsden, Kate Bosworth, Alexander Skarsgard, James Woods, Dominic Purcell and Willa Holland. What he put on display is very telling, it’s his way of implying that the redo is faithful to the classic – which kinda sucks in my opinion as I always prefer something original.
Still, based on the previously released trailer (found at the bottom of the this news story), Screen Gems’ flick arriving in theaters September 16 looks tonally similar to I Spit On Your Grave and Last House on the Left. That’s a good thing.
“David and Amy Sumner (Marsden and Bosworth), a Hollywood screenwriter and his actress wife, return to her small hometown in the deep South to prepare the family home for sale after her father’s death. Once there, tensions build in their marriage and old conflicts re-emerge with the locals, including Amy’s ex-boyfriend Charlie (Skarsgård), leading to a violent confrontation.”
