Production is finally moving forward on a remake of Day of the Dead. Let’s try and forget about Steve Miner’s attempt in 2008, which was so poorly received by critics and moviegoers that it only took in $301,000 against an $18 Million budget. Ouch!. The latest take is said to be a (true) remake of the third film in George A. Romero’s “Dead” trilogy, Day of the Dead. In comparison, Romero’s Day of the Dead earned $34 Million at the box office against a budget of $3.5 Million. <— Zombie film done right.
The remake, said to be that of Romero’s version rather than Miner’s, is 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. The film will be directed by Hèctor Hernández Vicens (The Corpse of Anna Fritz).
