The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision Blog is reporting that Zebediah de Soto is set to direct Night of the Living Dead: Origins, a 3D CGI format re-imagining of George Romero's landmark zombie film. However, Romero is not involved in this project.

De Soto wrote the script with David R. Schwartz, wants to update the tale partially by bringing out the characters' backstories and make what he called "an American-style anime."

No production date has been set.
