The Detroit suburb of Pontiac will be doing its best Spokane, Wash., impression next month.
That's when crews will be in town to shoot scenes for the upcoming remake of the classic 1980s film "Red Dawn."
Downtown Development Authority director Sandy McDonald tells The Oakland Press filmmakers will be in Pontiac for two weeks at the end of September and a few days in October.
The original "Red Dawn" portrayed a Soviet invasion of a small town in the U.S.

    Rumor is they are filming a part of the movie in Grand Ledge @ Fitzgerald Park. Connor Cruise and Josh Peck were seen at a local restaurant eating lunch there today (8/25/09).
