A major change will be made to the upcoming, already-shot remake of Red Dawn: It's villains! In a move that could be considered groundbreaking (or borderline racist) the post-production team will edit and digitally alter the film to change its original invading forces from the Red Chinese Army to the North Koreans! (And maybe make them shoot first in the Cantina?)
The move comes in the aftermath of massive backlash from the state-run Chinese press, which have taken offense to the film as an attempt to "demonize" their country. Also, fearing more backlash from ethnic Chinese Americans, the move was clearly designed to solidify the film's antagonistic forces with a more universally-despised regime. Although it was done in the spirit of bowing to political pressure, the decision was a paradoxically bold move. Will it pan-out for this delay-plagued, political hot potato of a remake?
