According to Variety magazine, “Wachmen” and “Grey’s Anatomy” star Jeffrey Dean Morgan is in final negotiations to join the cast of the remake of 1984 film “Red Dawn.”
There’s still no word on what role Morgan will play, but MTV’s movie blog mentioned that they wished he was playing the role of Mr. Eckert, whom Harry Dean Stanton played in the original.
It seems that it’s not meant to be, however. “Lost” actor Brett Cullen is rumored to be playing that role.
“Red Dawn” started filming in Mount Clemens last week and will continue in other Metro Detroit locations, including Royal Oak and Harper Woods, throughout this month.
