George Romero's Day of the Dead didn't exactly burn up the box office when it came outin 1985, but it was a smash compared to the very loosely adapted "remake," which was released straight-to-DVD in 2008. But someone is remaking it again, so maybe the third time will be the charm (probably not, though).

The new movie will be produced by Campbell Globman Films, who put out the completely unnecessary Texas Chainsaw 3D earlier this year. Producer Christa Campbell says, “We want to keep it as close to the Romero version as possible to make sure that his fans are happy. These are not going to be zombies climbing walls and doing back flips like in WORLD WAR Z.”


That's gratifying, I guess. But if you're going to make it as "close to the Romero version as possible," shouldn't we all just watch the original movie instead? Seems like it would save everybody a lot of trouble.
