JAMES MARSDEN - X-MEN STAR MARSDEN SET FOR STRAW DOGS REMAKE: "James Marsden is signed up for a 'reimagining' of the controversial 1971 film Straw Dogs, it has been reported.

Sam Peckinpah's revenge thriller gained notoriety during the 1980s when it was effectively banned due to a contentious rape scene involving actress Susan George.
[. . . .]
In Rod Lurie's planned remake, Marsden will play a Hollywood screenwriter who moves with his wife - not yet cast - to her hometown in the Deep South of the modern US."

Uh-oh is right. I went to school with Rod Lurie. I have read Rod Lurie. I have seen Rod Lurie's films and tv series. And as little as I like STRAW DOGS, Rod Lurie, you are no Sam Peckinpah.
