Rutger Hauer to Make an Appearance in ‘The Hitcher’ Remake

Not that it’s much of a surprise but Variety reports that Rutger Hauer, who starred in the original release of The Hitcher, will be making an appearance in the remake. Universal’s Rogue Pictures and Platinum Dunes are looking to shoot this Fall. Dave Meyers will be directing 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.
