Robert Butler with the Kansas City Star listed Rod Lurie’s Straw Dogs as a movie to watch in 2011. Straw Dogs according to his article is due to be released 9/16/2011 (which is a different date from what was reported earlier) features Alexander Skarsgard, Kate Bosworth and James Marsden.
Mr. Butler states why this film is one to watch in this excerpt:
Straw Dogs” (Sept. 16): Sam Peckinpah’s 1971 original — about a milquetoast professor who must defend his sexy wife and his vacation farmhouse from raging local thugs — is simultaneously terrific and ridiculous. A remake could be a big mistake, but I’m eager to see what director Rod Lurie (“The Contender,” “Deterrence”) and his cast (James Marsden, Kate Bosworth, Alexander Skarsgard) can do with it.
The gallery below has images from Straw Dogs cast and filming. I know fans of Alexander have been patiently awaiting the release of the film. Sounds like we may have a little bit longer to wait.
