Straw Dogs (2011)
Straw Dogs is an upcoming thriller directed by Rod Lurie and starring Alexander Skarsgard, James Marsden, and Kate Bosworth. A writer and his wife move to the deep South. They struggle both within their marraige and within their new, rather hostile, community. James Marsden stars as writer David Sumner, and Kate Bosworth plays his wife, Amy.
The film began shooting in 2009 in Shreveport and Vivian, Louisiana. It’s set to hit theaters in September 2011.
Little else is known about the movie. No pictures or trailers are available.
Syracuse University, however, will see an advanced screening of this thriller on Friday, September 24, 2010. I’ve already got plans to steal myself a seat in the auditorium, and will hopefully let you all know more about the movie this weekend. Lurie will also stay to answer questions about Straw Dogs after the screening. This is a remake from a 1971 movie starring Dustin Hoffman, also called Straw Dogs. Both films are based on the book “The Siege at Trencher’s Farm” by Gordon Williams.
