November 3, 2006 MICHAEL KNUDSEN



so remember 1986’s film the hitcher which starred c. thomas howell, rutger hauer, & jennifer jason leigh? well it’s getting a brand new update…releasing on february 9th ’07 the remake of the hitcher (stills are below) stars sophia bush, zachary knighton, & mega-cutie sean bean and is being directed by dave meyers (who has directed a bunch of kick-ass music videos) whether it’s 1986 or 2007 – the moral of the story i’m sure remains the same…don’t pick up hitchhikers! has anyone out there recently offered a ride to a stranger? i hope not! (if you’re paris hilton we already know your answer about giving rides to strangers) popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!

From filmmaker Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes production company (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre [2003], The Amityville Horror [2005]) comes a remake of the 1986 terror classic. Dave Meyers is directing the new film, which tracks the terrifying cross-country trajectory of Grace (Sophia Bush) and Jim (Zachary Knighton), two traveling college students who are tormented by the mysterious hitchhiker John Ryder, a.k.a. The Hitcher (Sean Bean).
