Johnathon Schaech

After years in development, a second remake of George A. Romero's 1985 zombie opus DAY OF THE DEAD (the first remake was released in 2008) is steadily moving forward. Earlier this month, we learned that Millennium and Campbell Grobman Films had hired Hèctor Hernández Vicens to direct the film, which has the following synopsis: 

The post-apocalyptic tale 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. 

Unless there are multiple half-human, half-zombie characters in the story, we now know who's going to be playing that villainous character, who is apparently named Max: Johnathon Schaech.

With credits on such films as PROM NIGHT (the remake), THE CULLING, DARK CIRCLES, LAID TO REST 1 and 2, and THE FORSAKEN, Schaech is certainly no stranger to the horror genre. He even wrote episodes of the Masters of Horror and Fear Itself anthology shows. 

So, a half-human, half-zombie. How does that work? Being a zombie seems a pretty straightforward thing, you either are one or you aren't.
