It appears as though Millenium really is remaking Day Of The Dead again, despite the fact that they were behind the poorly received 2008 Steve Miner directed stab. Now they’ve attached Mark Tonderai (The House At The End Of The Street) to direct. While I didn’t like HATES, Tonderai seems like an interesting guy and I’m pulling for him to make this work. At least we have a shot at something better than what we got 5 years ago.
Vicarious Entertainment, a new shingle being hatched by 1821 Media’s Paris Kasidokostas-Latsis and Terry Dougas, has teamed with Campbell Grobman Films to develop the adaptation of George A. Romero’s 1985 classic about a small group of military officers and scientists dwell in an underground bunker as the world above is overrun by zombies.
Much like the original, the remake will “[take place] years after the zombie plague has wiped out most of Earth’s population, a group of scientists and survivors attempt to find a cure, and instead open Pandora’s box.”
