Tom Cruise’s adopted son Connor has landed a role in the remake of the 1984 film Red Dawn.
The 14 year-old will play Daryl, the youngest in the group of high schoolers who defend their town against foreign invasion. Josh Hutcherson, Edwin Hodge, Adrianne Palicki and former stars of the Australian series Home and Away Chris Hemsworth and Isabel Lucas will also star in the war drama.
Dawn is scheduled to begin filming next month and set to be released in 2010.
Blindie sees big things on the horizon for the little Cruise man. Afterall, the original film helped put Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen on the Hollywood map and his father is sort of a box-office heavyweight. And in case you missed it, Connor played a young Will Smith in last year’s Seven Pounds.
