    Mark Tonderai is currently doing Pest - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2597892/?ref_=nm_flmg_dr_1

    Following the outbreak of a virus that wipes out the majority of the human population, a teen documents her family's new life in quarantine and tries to protect her infected sister.
    Hopefully he'll be well practiced at the apocalypse when he gets to do Day Of The Dead!


    And then starring in "Pest" is Abigail Breslin, who is of course starring in "Maggie" (a zombie flick with Arni) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1881002/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_2

    Liked the original. Despised the 2008 remake. It always bugs me when the undead have amazing spiderman-like abilities (running along ceilings, faster than fast, stronger than strong, etc.). Any SyFy channel produced zombie flick is 100% guaranteed to suck more than a super massive blackhole, so as long as THEY keep their grubby untalented paws off of this re-remake, it might have a chance to be well done and worth a look.

    The original is perfect as-is. No remake needed!

    WTF has any of that shite plot got to with Day of the Dead in any way, shape, or form?!

    Talk about abusing a title! As if it hasn't already been trampled on enough as it is!

    How can something be "half-human, half-zombie"? That doesn't make any sense.

    "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

    The remake, “Follows a former medical student tormented by a dark figure from her past, who happens to be a half-human, half-zombie hell-bent on destroying her by scrambling along ceilings...

    There! It's going to be even better now!


    NOTE: I have just this very minute finished watching the original again, come to my PC, and read about this latest news... So yes... FFS!

    The dumbest shit, that's what this entire endeavour is.

    The sheer lack of respect these never-heard-of-them production companies have for GAR and Day of the Dead is just staggering.

    As far as I am concerned, there has never really been a Day of the Dead remake. For a movie to qualify as a "remake" it needs to preserve at least the essential plot elements of the original, but the movies that have used that title so far are totally different stories trying to capitalize on a well-known movie title, but not real "remakes" since they have nothing in common with the original except the fact that there's zombies. Night and Dawn have had real "remakes", but not Day.
