Day of the Dead Remake.


July 11, 2006 -- Two big news pieces on the latest big budget zombie film to come out of Hollywood -- and this one appears to have a big budget. BlackFilm reports: "On the heels on reporting that Ving Rhames and Mira Sorvino are in "Day of the Dead", the remake of the classic horror film by George Romero, has confirmed through Millennium Films that while Rhames is definitely in the film, but Sorvino is NOT, it's Mean Suvari. Besides Rhames and Suvari, the cast include Michael Welch, Annalynne McCord, Stark Sands, and Nick Cannon. Steve Miner (Halloween H20, Friday the 13th, Part 2, 3D) will direct the film. Jeffrey Reddick wrote the screenplay. In the original, Day of the Dead dealt with the zombie assault on a military establishment, satirizing the military mindset in the process. The remake could be different as "Dawn of the Dead" was a few years ago."

Rhames has apparently joined the cast, to link the film to the "Dawn of the Dead" remake from a few years back. Word is he may be playing a Bub-like character this time around. All the same, expect running zombies in this one. Meanwhile, the truth of this report may have been hinted at by screenwriter Jeffrey Reddick, who told Fangoria: "The official start date for principal photography on 'Day of the Dead' has been set for July 23. Everyone involved is extremely excited about the project. They're in the process of casting as we speak. Millennium and Emmet/Furla Films will be announcing the cast soon, and they've landed some really great, high-profile names for the film."...

Why...why must they bother?
