Sean Bean to Become the New "Hitcher"

by | June 1, 2006 | Comments

At first I was mostly skeptical regarding this remake of "The Hitcher" that’s being set up at Michael Bay‘s Platinum Dunes outfit. But after reading a few interviews with the original screenwriter (Jake Wade Wall, not Eric Red) and seeing the early casting news, I’m beginning to hold out some hope here. Yes, that’s right: Sean Bean will be stepping into the role made infamous by Sir Rutger Hauer.

Says The Hollywood Reporter: "Sean Bean is thumbing his way to "The Hitcher," Rogue Pictures’ remake of the 1986 horror film being produced by Platinum Dunes. Sophia Bush also is on board the film, which is being directed by veteran music video helmer Dave Meyers. The script follows a young couple driving across the country who become prey for a serial killer, who blames all of his murders on the young man. Eric Bernt wrote the current draft."

No word yet on who’ll be playing The Hitchee, but I just hope it won’t be Ashton Kutcher.

For those with short memories, Sean Bean is the omnipresent Englishman from "The Fellowship of the Ring," "Troy," "National Treasure," "The Island," "Flightplan," and "Silent Hill."
