Pontiac to be taken over by Chinese Army in ‘Red Dawn’ remake

Posted on 25 August 2009 by David


Pontiac will be doing its best Spokane, Wash., impression next month.

That’s when crews will be in Pontiac to shoot scenes for the upcoming remake of the classic 1980s film “Red Dawn.” The city is about 20 miles north-northwest of Detroit.

Downtown Development Authority director Sandy McDonald tells The Oakland Press filmmakers will be in Pontiac for two weeks at the end of September and a few days in October.

The city will be taken over by the Chinese Army, according to the Press’ Randal Yakey.

“Caged and enraged, resident of the city will rise up and take back their town in an attempt to fight back a repressive regime,” he writes
The original “Red Dawn” portrayed a Soviet invasion of a small town in the U.S.
