The ‘Day Of The Dead’ Remake Finds A Director From The End Of The Street!

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.

    I wonder if the remake will be of the original script? Romero had to scale down parts of the script due to budget, so if this new remake was to the original script then it could be something worth watching.

      See that would be pretty much the only thing that would make this project worthwhile. I doubt they have the rights to that material however.

    In regards to Romero’s original script, wouldn’t it make sense, with the success of The Walking Dead, just to turn it into a tv show……

    Whew, that Steve Miner Day of the Dead remake was AWWWWWFUL. I loved the original and after the great remake of Dawn of the Dead, I’ll keep my fingers crossed for this one.

    Everything about this kills me. Day of the Dead is my favorite zombie flick and to have it remade once hurts. But again? and by the guy responsible for the abysmal House at the End of the Street? Damn man, I don’t know whether to be a sad wreck or fuming with anger.

    Day of the Dead 2008 … there is hardly a film review that can fully describe the feeling of disappointment that that hunk of garbage deserved..call it slap in the face to fans of the original film and a quick way to make a buck of the recent success of Zach Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead reboot.
    i hope these producers and director Mark Tonderai took notes on what to do and what not to do in regards to these beloved Romero classics..
