    They gotta base it on the original script instead of the original.
    1: after stuff like world war z an audience wont be pulled in by half a dozen people sitting in a bunker, in todays media thats radio play stuff, not movies expected to cell. it sucks but its the state of things.
    2: performances like rhodes and frankenstein are too damn good to recapture so it would just be real pale in comparison
    3: everything like this "wants the walking dead audience" and thats something that most of us know is actually tonally similar to day, but i dont think they will think that and it will effect their design choices.

    Funny, I started to reread the original script last night. It'll be the third time for me. Thanks for putting it up Neil, it's a great read.

    "I worked in a factory owned by Germans, at coal pits owned by Frenchmen, and at a chemical plant owned by Belgians. There I discovered something about capitalists. They are all alike, whatever the nationality. All they wanted from me was the most work for the least money that kept me alive. So I became a Communist." - Ники́та Серге́евич Хрущёв

    Pfffffffffft. Let them remake it as many times as they want until they get it right (Never).

    I'm hoping for a fairly solid remake...

    ‘Day of the Dead’ Remake’ Gets a Director; Filming to Begin in 2014

    A remake of George Romero’s Day of the Dead was announced just a few months ago by Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell, who also produced the Texas Chainsaw Massacre reboot Texas Chainsaw 3D. Now Deadline reports that the producers have settled on a director for the project, Mark Tonderai (Hush) and are already putting together a production schedule.

    It’s important to keep an open mind about horror remakes, especially after Zack Snyder’s surprisingly good remake of Dawn of the Dead, but assigning Tonderai as director is a fast way to kill off excitement for this one. Tonderai is best known for another horror film, House at the End of the Street, an altogether terrible movie that is notable for starring Jennifer Lawrence in the lead role, and basically nothing else.

    Day of the Dead was remade just five years ago by director Steve Miner (Halloween H2O), with Mena Suvari in the lead as Sarah. The original is the third in Romero’s classic zombie trilogy, set some time after the original zombie outbreak, as friction grows between a group of scientists and soldiers occupying an underground bunker that’s secure from zombie infiltration, but not from frailties of the human condition.

    Bet they'll be sprinting, velociraptor screeching, teleporting vampire zombies, too.
