While the "Red Dawn" remake continues to sit on the shelf, as it was reported a couple of days ago, MGM are looking to sell the film and trying to make it more internationally friendly. As you might recall, the plot of the original film revolves around a band of teens who fight off some evil Soviets. In the remake, the baddies were switched up to the Chinese who, as the plot goes, decide to cash in on the debt the United States owes them. But fearing that the film might be too controversial for the lucrative film market in China, the studio has decided to digitally alter the film scrubbing references to the Chinese as the main antagonists and instead slotting in North Koreans. Needless to say, the move caused some chatter in certain quarters, with some accusing the filmmakers of being pushed around, but producer Tripp Vinson is going to take that sitting down. Because he's an American dammit.
