James Marsden (X-Men) and Alexander Skarsgard (“True Blood”) are starring the remake of Sam Peckinpah’s Straw Dogs, says The Hollywood Reporter.The original told of an American (Dustin Hoffman) and his British wife who encounter violence and harassment in rural England. Then, after one particular attack, Hoffman’s David Sumner seeks violent retribution.
The remake moves the action to a small Southern town. Marsden will take on the role of Sumner, and it looks like Skarsgard will play one of the vicious locals.
James and someone named Alexander? Why am I always seeing Summers brothers in so many things?:P
