Sophia Bush to Entice "The Hitcher"

by | May 9, 2006 | Comments

Looks like some cast & crew are coming together for Platinum Dunes / Rogue’s remake of "The Hitcher," which is a brilliantly nasty cult classic from 1985 that stars C. Thomas Howell as a stupid driver and Rutger Hauer as the hitchhiker from hell.

Production Weekly informs us that Sophia Bush has been signed for the remake, which makes her the first cast member to climb aboard. You’ll no doubt remember Ms. Bush from her work in "Van Wilder," "Supercross," "Stay Alive," and TV’s "One Tree Hill."

The new "Hitcher" will be directed by music video expert Dave Meyers, from a screenplay by Jake Wade Wall ("When a Stranger Calls") and Eric Bernt ("Romeo Must Die"). (The original was directed by Robert Harmon ("Highwaymen") and written by Eric Red ("Near Dark").)
