A Remake?

Screenhead reports that a remake of Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dog is underway.

Kate Bosworth and Alexander Skarsgard are set to star along with James Marsden in Straw Dogs, a reimagining of Sam Peckinpah's 1971 film.

Rod Lurie wrote the script and will direct.  Filming starts in August.

The story follows Marsden who plays a Hollywood screenwriter, relocates with his wife (Bosworth) to her hometown in Mississippi.  The wife left the South for LA in hopes of becoming an actress.  She agrees to return home, so her husband can finish his script in quiet.  Skarsgard plays her high school boyfriend, an ex-football hero who sees the return of his former girlfriend as a way to reclaim glory.
