Another Day of the Dead remake?!?!

I seen this posted on Facebook via HorrorManiacs (https://www.facebook.com/HorrorMania...ocation=stream)

George A. Romero's 1985 Classic Day of the Dead Is Being Remade Yet AGAIN !!! Texas Chainsaw 3D Producers Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell Has Bought The Rights To The Film & Say They Plan To Remain Faithful To The Original.. They Also Plan The Budget To Be Between $10 & $20 Million, They Hope To Release It Sometime Next Year. ~ Thoughts ?


---------------

Seriously, WTF?!


Added: BD has a page on this now http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/32...y-of-the-dead/

The only thing that sucks about this is that budget seems on par or possibly worse than the Miner remake. But I love the original and though the low budget sequels were terrible, miner's was ok, just wanted a more faithful version which it seems like we'll get here.

This is just a shameless World War Z cash-in.

Exactly - they think we all really want another film featuring chaotic riot anxiety just so they can quick cut and cgi the hell out of their action scenes. They may also try to make it "gritty" and "more real" - more of that "this ain't your dad's Day of the Dead" nonsense.
Oh well, a quick buck could be made who is to say, I suppose.

It would make more sense to remake Dawn again first!

The last remake was horrible, so I'm actually cool with another kick at this can.

I'm beyond getting frustrated at not only remakes, but now it seems like we're getting into "three" make territory with some of these films. Now I just look forward to seeing all the new and incredibly inventive ways these people can find to completely fuck these up.

If it does well, maybe they will conquer Land of the Dead next.

Lati Grobman said their remake will honor Romero’s original vision by ditching the popular fast-moving zombies and returning to the slow shufflers.

“Our goal is to reset the genre by finding the perfect balance between nostalgia and modernity,” Grobman says, “all while crafting a story that has both heart and brains — literally.”

Wouldn't make more sense to remake films that had failed to live up to their potential? Romero's version was perfect, it doesn't need a remake. These people shouldn't be remaking the Romero Day of the Dead, they should be remaking the Steve Miner Day of the Dead.
