Day of the Dead remake may get a bloody subtitle

Day of the Dead remake

There is a second remake of George A. Romero's 1985 zombie classic DAY OF THE DEAD in existence as we speak, although a release date for the film has not yet been announced. Judging by the website of production company Millennium Films, when the remake does reach screens it might have a slightly different title than the original film and the 2008 remake. DAY OF THE DEAD might have a subtitle this time around.

On the Millennium website, the remake's title is listed as DAY OF THE DEAD: BLOODLINE. Also featured on the site is a new piece of sales art, which can be seen below and sports the goofball tagline "Love Means Never Having to Say You're a Zombie".

That may be the case, but love also means that you should advise your loved one not to use an over-used subtitle. I think the world of entertainment could do without any more projects that have "Bloodline" or "Bloodlines" in their title, at least for a while. There are plenty. You don't stand out by being called Bloodline(s). Just within genre sequels we already have HELLRAISER: BLOODLINE, WRONG TURN 5: BLOODLINES, and TREMORS 5: BLOODLINES. A DAY OF THE DEAD remake doesn't need to be added into the mix.

Not that we really even need another remake of DAY OF THE DEAD, subtitle or not.

Directed by Hèctor Hernández Vicens, this take on DAY has the following synopsis: 

In a post-apocalyptic, zombie-filled society, a former med school student is tormented by a dark figure from her past. The only thing is, he’s a half-human, half-zombie hell-bent on destroying her world.

I still don't understand how someone can be "half-human, half-zombie".

The remake stars Sophie Skelton, Lorina Kamburova, Marcus Vanco, Nick Loeb, Rachel O’Meara, Debbie Sherman, Luke Cousins, Nathan Cooper, Cristina Serafini, and Johnathon Schaech as a zombie named Max.
