Austin-Lensed ‘Hitcher’ Opens 2/9

Austin-Lensed 'Hitcher' Opens 2/9

This just in from Rogue/Focus: The upcoming remake of cult-classic 1980s film, The Hitcher, has landed a release date of February 9, 2007. The film, which was shot in Austin this summer, stars Sean Bean, Sophia Bush, and Zachary Knighton. Many hold a soft spot in their hearts for the original (starring Rutger Hauer and C. Thomas Howell), but it was such a cable-TV sensation that today’s teenagers will likely have no clue they’re seeing any sort of remake. And it should be no surprise that this new release was produced by Platinum Dunes, the folks behind the Texas Chainsaw remakes that were also shot in the ATX.
