New ‘Day Of The Dead’ Remake Slowly, But Menacingly Coming Our Way

By Andie Lowenstein

As zombies continue to reign on the big screens, George A. Romero’s classic 1985 film “Day of the Dead” is being brought back to life once more. “Texas Chainsaw 3D” producers Lati Grobman and Christina Campbell are teaming with Millennium Films and Taurus Entertainment for a second try after the film was revived back in 2008. Campbell Grobman Films is currently holding meetings with screenwriters about the best method of adapting the 1985 original about military personnel and scientists hiding from the zombies in a bunker.

“Contrary to other recent zombie remakes, our Day of the Dead will honor Romero’s original vision by reviving the slow, brooding zombie that terrorized so many of our childhoods,” Grobman told Deadline. “The trend of the fast, agile, ’sprinting’ zombie creates a lot of great jump-out-of-your-seat moments, but it doesn’t compare to the psychological fear and tension that builds when going up against Romero’s original undead army.”

This isn’t the first time filmmakers have taken on Romero’s flesh-starved corpses.
