Day of the Dead remake being produced by Texas Chainsaw 3D team

Jul. 10, 2013by: Eric Walkuski

Christa Campbell and Latie Grobman, two of the forces behind this year's TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D, are now behind a remake of George A. Romero's DAY OF THE DEAD, reports the L.A. Times.

You'll recall that DAY OF THE DEAD was already remade once, dreadfully, in 2008 by Steve Miner. (Ironically, that starred Scream Queen Campbell). Campbell and Grobman apparently bought the rights from that film's producers James and Robert Dudelson. Now they're pursuing a screenwriter to help develop the project.

Campbell said:

"We want to keep it as close to the Romero version as possible to make sure that his fans are happy. These are not going to be zombies climbing walls and doing back flips like in 'World War Z.'"

The remake, which will be co-produced by Millennium Films (which also had a hand in TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D), will have a budget of between $10 million and $20 million and - if all goes according to plan - be in theaters next year.

the remake from 2008 was

NOT a remake.... just a stupid ass movie that swiped a title from Romero and USED it to profit off a living legend.
that 2008 Day of the Dead is NOT a remake in any sense of the word ... and in a word... HORRIBLE

I might not choke on it...

Maybe they should keep with the "timeline" and make this 'Day' in the remake of 'Dawn of the Dead' universe. Be kinda cool to see what they could do with it...even though the zombies will be sprinting. We are agree though the remake of 'Dawn' was better then we thought it would be

Once upon a time, there was this crazy idea that you only remade movies that weren't great the first time around....
What a crazy, stupid idea that was....
