Interviews: Director Breck Eisner, Production Designer Andrew Menzies, and Special Make-Up Designer Rob Hall -- Working behind the camera on the remake of George Romero's The Crazies

Written by Matt Goldberg Director Breck Eisner Best known for his work on the 2005 Matthew McConaughey flick "Sahara", Breck Eisner is the first major player we meet when we arrive on the set and he makes sure he can talk to us while he's still energetic and clear-headed before the grueling and complicated shoot he has ahead of him that night. On approaching the remake and the fundamental changes to the story: “Any time you do a remake or a reimagining, you want to have target aspects of the movie that they didn’t have when they first made it. My theory is they should have something they couldn’t do the first time around that you could do differently. It’s not like you’re just redoing Psycho or redoing a perfect film. Romero obviously had limitations in terms of the budget. He had $275 grand to make the entire movie.
