Dr Doom in ‘The Hitcher’ Remake? Nope

Rumors have been appearing all over the web that Julian McMahon, who plays Dr. Doom in the upcoming Fantastic Four movie, could possibly end up with a role in Platinum Dunes and Rogue Pictures’ upcoming remake of The Hitcher. I’ve checked with a few sources and found out that casting hasn’t even begun and the script is still in the works. The only confirmation is Dave Meyers will be directing off of Jake Wade Walls’ script. In the original, which starred Rutger Hauer and Jennifer Jason Leigh, a young man transporting a car to another state is stalked along the road by a cunning and relentless serial killer who eventually frames the driver for a string of murders. Chased by police and shadowed by the killer, the driver’s only help comes from a truck stop waitress.
