A second remake of George A. Romero's seminal classic, this version will stay true to the original and include slow, brooding zombies.
House at the End of the Street director Mark Tonderai has signed on to direct the Day of the Dead remake. We first reported on the project back in July, when Millennium Films came aboard.
The filmmaker co-wrote the screenplay with Lars Jacobson, which is set years after a zombie invasion wiped out most of the Earth's population. The story follows a group of scientists and survivors trying to discover a cure for the undead virus, but, instead, they open a dangerous Pandora's box in the process.Read More
George A. Romero's seminal zombie classic Day Of The Dead is getting a reboot from Texas Chainsaw 3D producers Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell for Millennium Films.
This will be the second time the film has been rebuilt from the ground up. Originally slated for theatrical release in 2007, Steve Miner's 2008 Day of the Dead eventually debuted on home video and failed to kick start its intended franchise. The original film was the final installment in George A. Romero's Dead series, which includes 1968's Night of the Living Dead, which has been remade numerous times over the years due to it being in the public domain, and 1978's Dawn Of The Dead, which was remade in 2004 under the direction of Man of Steel's Zack Snyder.Read More
