    Best. News. Ever.
    And for what it is worth, Ellsworth is a helluva writer. Y: The Last Man is most excellent.

    If Powers Booth ain't in it, I ain't watching.

    How the hell will they remake Red Dawn with terrorism at the core? You've got to have the WOLVERINES! fighting off the occupying forces.

    Guess they'll have them beating the hell out of muslims and blowing up a mosque or two.
    And then getting arrested for committing hate crimes.
    This is gonna suck.

    The defining quote of my generation: "WOLVERINES!"

    I wish it wasn't being updated. I think it should be set back in the mid-80s.

    If you're redoing it in this day and age, you've got to make the invading force Chinese. It's the only nation with enough soldiers to put an occupying force on the ground here.

    Maybe the high school kids can be sons of oil company executives and army contractors attending school in Iraq. It'll be great!

    I'll just add, before I get working on my script for the Red Dawn remake, Ellsworth knows what he is doing.
    Y has been a great to read and I think he probably has an idea or four to make Red Dawn work.

    Ellsworth is just doing the screenplay for Y, I believe. Series creator Brian K. Vaughan is the writer for Y: The Last Man comic book. And, yes, the book is most excellent. I'm about halfway through the series. Need to pick of the rest of the TPBs and finish it out.

    If I remember correctly the opening montage of the original focused on the spread of communism and the fact Mexico had become a communist country, which is where the attackers flew from when they invaded.

    They could go the China route or they could change "spread of communism" to "spread of radical Islam" and turn Mexico into an Islamic state and go from there.

    Personally I agree with setting it in the mid-80s like the original and make it a good old fashioned USA vs. The Godless Commies pic.

    You can never really go wrong with USA vs. Godless Commies.
