You think they'll base it off Romero's original script, the one he was going to do before his budget was cut in half?

IMDB doesn't say anything about Ving being in the 'Day' remake. That just might be wishful thinking. From what I've read, the story will be completely different than ROmero's original version. The remake is said to take place in a hospital where a group of survivors hole up during a zombie outbreak. It's not going to be directed by Zack Snyder either. Who knows though, it's been in pre-production for years, anything could change at this point.

Zombat, are you mistaking the fake sequel with the real remake?

I could be. I've heard so many conflicting rumors it's hard to keep track of them all. I hope it's based on Romero's film and not some other idea. Either way I'm always looking forward to new zombie flick.

Oh boy, "From the Director of Halloween H20". Wow, that film was a gem. :roll:
I just hope it's not a piece of crap.

I don't think a remake could do any worse than the original. It sucked ass IMHO. I was GLAD when the zombies ate them finally.

this link goes to the trailer, but man it's running slow right now: http://www.nuimage.net/film_library_det ... 94B08FA%7D

It would be nice if Ving Rhame's character in this film was the brother of his character in Dawn, but I seriously doubt it. This thing looks like a straight to DVD release to me.

Having only read the screenplay for Day (several versions actually), I can't say that this is a bad thing. Especially in light of the Night>Dawn>Day>Land deterioration in quality.

It looks like runners are the more popular type of zombie these days. I honestly can't agree more with the new trend. I mean sure, shamblers were once scary to people, but today's modern consumer has been so desensitized to death and destruction that those old school zombies are more comedic than scary.

I think just about every zombie movie worth watching from here on out will use running zombies of some variety (rabid humans or actual undead menace). I also think Rhames will be to zombies what Bruce Cambell was to the evil dead. I honestly can't say it's a bad thing either...

I think they were more funny then scary back then too. It used to be that the zombies represented something like the mindless paths that people follow. Now it is just one more thing to chase after you. Horror movies of yesteryear were trying to tell you to look at your life. From the pod people showing how your neighbor could be communist, to Rod Sterling's "Monsters are Due on Maple Street", the best way to scare people is to show that they are their own worst enemy.

Exactly why I love George Romero films.

I thought I would point out before Ghost does that those two have opposite takes. In "Monsters are Due on Maple Street" it is the fear of the neighbor being something more that leads to the violence not them actually being something else.

Good news for sure. I have been starving for a follow up to DOTD04 for about the last year.

Anybody notice that the casting of Rhames and MENA SUVARI, who looks a LOT like the actress who played Sara the nurse in Snyder's film, might be a deliberate ploy to draw the hungry Snyder fans to this film?

Maybe the people putting this film together beat Snyder in the race to the next big zombie movie and really kicked his ass by taking Rhames and getting a reminder of Sara too. Hmmm.

(When I first saw DOTD04 I thought THAT Sara looked a lot in a way like Mena Suvari. I wouldn't complain about living out my last days 'holed up' with either, but of course Mena is quite the American Beauty. :lol:

From what I saw in the trailer it might be quite bad. I really hope they dont screw it up.

Which of the Day of the Dead remakes was that for?

It doesn't look as good as DoTD04 to me and certainly not as good as the original Day (Which was the last great Zombie film that George actually directed).

Mind you trailers on Youtube never seem that good to me so maybe I'm judgeing it all wrong.
