Day of the Dead Remake is Still Happening, Mark Tonderai Tapped to Direct

Day of the Dead Remake

Dear God help us all: The cinematic geniuses who collectively coughed up “Texas Chainsaw 3D” are presently hard at work on yet another “Day of the Dead” remake. This time around, the re-telling of George A. Romero’s zombie picture will be tackled by none other than “House at the End of the Street” director Mark Tonderai.

Why do we need another remake of “Day of the Dead”? I’m guessing it’s because director John Luessenhop’s “Texas Chainsaw 3D” made some scratch at the box office earlier this year. And everyone knows that the boys and girls in Hollywood absolutely adore cash. Any kind of cash. If the moviegoers were willing to pay good money to see someone defecate inside a plastic bag for 90 minutes, we’d get a trilogy. In 3D.

The latest remake reportedly takes place after the zombie apocalypse has destroyed most of the planet. A small group of survivors and scientists try their best to find a solution to this flesh-eating problem, though they just end up making it worse. Kind of like Hollywood and remakes. Okay, okay. I’ll stop now. These are really lame jokes, I know.

If you’re curious to see what producers Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman are capable of achieving, then take a moment to watch “Texas Chainsaw 3D.” Go on — I dare ya. Then again, you could always watch Steve Miner’s 2008 “Day of the Dead” starring Nick Cannon and Mena Suvari. Wait… isn’t that Christa Campbell in the credits? Curious, that.
