One of the worst remakes of all time is Steve Miner’s 2008 take on George A. Romero’s seminal Day of the Dead.
Now, Nu Image/Millennium are taking another stab at it, but it sounds like they’re trying something a bit new.
The Corpse of Anna Fritz‘s Hèctor Hernández Vicens is directing what’s described as a post-apocalyptic tale that, “Follows a former medical student tormented by a dark figure from her past, who happens to be a half-human, half-zombie hell-bent on destroying her.”
Campbell Grobman Films produces, coming off of the upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel, Leatherface, with Jeff Rice.
Nu Image holds worldwide rights excluding the Middle East.
Mark Tonderai (The House at the End Of The Street) was attached back in 2013. The synopsis back then added this to the story: “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.” It’s unclear if this has been rewritten to align more with Vicens’s vision.
Casting is currently underway, we’re told.
