Finally, Kate has a new project besides "The Warrior's Way" and "Lost Girls and Love Hotels". She has just joined the cast of an upcoming remake movie called "Straw Dogs".
The story is about a Hollywood screenwriter who relocates with his wife to her hometown in Mississippi. There, while tensions build between them, a brewing conflict with locals becomes a threat to them both.
James Marsden and Alexander Skarsgård also star in the movie. This is the second time James and Kate star as a husband and wife. The first time was in "Superman Returns".
James plays as the Hollywood screenwriter. Kate plays as the wife who left the South for Los Angeles to become an actress and returns home so her husband can finish his script in quiet. And Alexander plays as Kate's ex boyfriend who sees the return of his former girlfriend as a way to reclaim glory.
The original movie was starred by Dustin Hoffman, Susan George, and Del Henney. The movie nominated for an oscar for "Best Music, Original Dramatic Score". Directed by Sam Peckinpah.
Rod Lurie directs the remake movie. And it begins filming on August 17, 2009. Can't wait to see some pictures of Kate from the set, XD.
By the way, here is the trailer for the original movie.
