With the box office success of World War Z, and the cult following the film Warm Bodies, it’s easy to see that Hollywood’s love affair with zombies continues to rise. These days you can find the undead in movies like these, and on TV with shows like AMC’s The Walking Dead, and A&E’s upcoming remake of The Returned. Even Broadcast networks are getting into the game with the likes of NBC’s Babylon Fields, ABC’s midseason replacement Resurrection, and the CW’s adaptation of iZombie. Zombies aren’t going anywhere, and they’re even rehashing old properties that have already been remade.
According to Deadline, Millennium Films is looking to remake George A. Romero’s 1985 horror film Day of the Dead. Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell, the pair behind Texas Chainsaw 3D, will produce the new zombie retread, with Mark Tonderai in the director’s chair. The British director broke out with his first film Hush in 2009. In 2012, he helmed House at the End of the Street starring Jennifer Lawrence. Before going Dead, he will also work on the movie Peste with Jason Blum.
