Hauer Hitches Again?
Variety reports today that Rutger Hauer will appear in Platinum Dunes and Focus Features' remake of the 1986 Robert Harmon flick The Hitcher. In the original, Hauer played John Ryder, a psychopath who torments and toys with the road trippin' C. Thomas Howell.
Bloody-Disgusting has debunked any recent casting rumors (even though actor Julian McMahon of Nip/Tuck confirmed he did a 'screen test' for the film), but what's this about Hauer making a return? And in what capacity will he contribute? A cameo perhaps?
The Hitcher will be directed by Dave Meyers.
