A Real Hitchhiker to Join ‘The Hitcher’?

During an interview with Michael Bay it was revealed to MTV that Sam Rockwell (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) is in talks to star in Platinum Dunes and Rogue Pictures’ upcoming remake of 1986 horror film The Hitcher. First timer Dave Meyers directs off a script by Jake Wade Walls. 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.
