Based on the controversial but celebrated original from director Sam Peckinpah, Straw Dogs was shot in Shreveport in August of 2009. Though it’s been a long wait for the remake, a stellar cast that includes True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard, James Marsden, Kate Bosworth, James Woods, Dominic Purcell and Willa Holland has certainly kept our expectations high.

Marsden plays a Hollywood screenwriter who relocates with his wife to her hometown in Mississippi. Bosworth plays the wife, who left the South to become an actress and returns home so her husband can finish his script in quiet. Skarsgard plays her high school boyfriend, an ex-football hero who seeks the return of his former girlfriend as a way to reclaim glory.
