(Cbr) House at the End of the Street director Mark Tonderai will remake George A. Romero’s 1985 zombie film Day of the Dead for Millennium Films. Deadline offers a one-sentence summary of the remake: “In this new version, years after the zombie plague has wiped out most of Earth’s population, a group of scientists and survivors attempt to find a cure, and instead open Pandora’s box.” Millennium announced the remake in July, with "Texas Chainsaw 3D" producers Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell attached. Tonderai wrote the script with Lars Jacobson, and they’re looking for a summer 2014 release. »

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. »

No, you’re not imagining things. Just five years from a 2008 direct-to-dvd low-budget remake, a new cheap remake of George A. Romero’s “Day Of The Dead” is shuffling across our screens next year courtesy of Millennium Films and Campbell Grobman Films. Deadline reports “House At The End Of The Street”—aka that Jennifer Lawrence horror movie—helmer Mark Tonderai has been tapped to direct the remake from a screenplay he co-wrote with Lars Jacobson. This modern-day version takes place “after the zombie plague has wiped out most of Earth’s population, [where] a group of scientists and survivors attempt to find a cure, and instead open Pandora’s box.” Production is set to start next summer. Although we weren’t quite as taken with it as others were (read our mixed review here), John Krokidas’ directorial debut “Kill Your Darlings” made a big splash earlier this year and has made a certain studio take note. »

They’ll start casting the film soon, and the studio is looking to get the film in production by 2014. Zombies are very popular right now, and I doubt they are going to go away anytime soon. »

Arguably one of Zack Snyder's best films is the one that brought him to lots of people's attention in the first place: his remake of George A Romero's Dawn Of The Dead. Sure, it made one or two contentious decisions, and there's the usual argument over remaking such a film in the first place. But in the cold light of day, there's a lot that that film does right.
It's taken some time for it to happen, then, but plans are now afoot to bring a reake of Day Of The Dead to the screen as well. A director has now been found for the movie too, with Mark Tonderai set to take the job on. Tonderai most recently directed House At The End Of The Street. »
Back in July it was revealed that George A. Romero's Day of the Dead was to get the remake treatment again, and now Millennium Films has announced that Mark Tonderai (House at the End of the Street) will take on directing duties, as well as co-writing the script with Lars Jacobsen.
According to Deadline, the latest version of Day of the Dead is described as a "modern day retelling" of the zombie cult classic and will take place "years after the zombie plague has wiped out most of Earth's population [as] a group of scientists and survivors attempt to find a cure, and instead open Pandora's box."
The original Day of the Dead is the third instalment in Romero's Dead saga and hit cinemas in 1985. Steve Miner directed a rather dreadful remake in 2008 starring Mena Suvari (American Beauty), while this latest remake is expected to begin casting soon ahead of a summer 2014 shoot. »

There are a lot of stories to be told involving zombies, but cinema is not often the place where new stories are told. For every slice of brow-beating originality like World War Z, there are a few dozen made-for-pennies films that go by something along the lines of Zombies vs. Abolitionists . But there.s no need to come up with new zombie movies so long as there are George Romero films to remake. And the upcoming Day of the Dead remake from Millennium Films has landed its director in Mark Tonderai, best known for Jennifer Lawrence.s (arguably) worst film, last year.s House at the End of the Street. I guess it makes sense that he.s the guy they hired, since he co-wrote the script with Lars Jacobson, who wrote and directed 2008.s pitch black thriller Baby Blues. It will be produced by Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman, »
You may be surprised to learn that there’s a new remake of George Romero’s Day of the Dead in the works, given that there was already a remake released in 2008. Here’s the thing, though: Shut up. Don’t you ever talk about that movie again. It was a horrible, direct-to-video cash-in on the general feeling of goodwill toward Zack Snyder’s remake of Dawn of the Dead, which was a pretty decent movie except for the whole fast-moving zombie thing.
This new remake is being helmed by Mark Tonderai, whose most notable prior credit was directing House at the End of the Street. That movie was not very good at all, but it did have Jennifer Lawrence in it, so a bunch of people probably went to go see it anyway. That was apparently enough to earn Tonderai the new gig, but it is definitely not enough »

Why remake a genre classic once, when you can remake it twice? Such is the philosophy at Millennium films.
In this new version, years after the zombie plague has wiped out most of Earth’s population, a group of scientists and survivors attempt to find a cure, and instead open Pandora’s box.
Production is expected to start summer of 2014.

Five years ago Millennium Films produced a remake of George Romero's Day of the Dead. You'd be forgiven for either never knowing this or forgetting all about it, because it was an instantly forgettable film. It was directed by Steve Miner (Friday the 13th Parts II and III), and it did star Mena Suvari and Ving Rhames, but it was just an all around not good film clearly made to cash in on the brand recognition that comes with any "of the Dead" title. Even though no one really liked it and it quickly went away, its financial prospects must have been okay, because now Millennium Films is returning to that well to produce yet another remake of Day of the Dead. This one is set to be directed by Mark Tonderai (of the very generic House at the End of the Street), and it...

Hot on the heels of news that the classic 80s flick Road House will get a remake from The Fast and the Furious director Rob Cohen, we have another film from the same decade getting the remake treatment. Deadline has word that Millennium Films has hired House at the End of the Street director Mark Tonderai to direct a remake of the 1985 horror flick Day of the Dead, one of George Romero's several zombie films he's made over the years. The original film was actually the third film in Romero's zombie series, and it was poorly remade by Millennium in 2008 by Steve Miner with Mena Suvari and Nick Cannon. The original film followed a small group of scientists and soldiers taking refuge in an underground missile silo where they struggle to control the flesh-eating horror that walks the earth above. However, we're not sure if the film will follow »

The filmmaker co-wrote the screenplay with Lars Jacobson, which is set years after a zombie invasion wiped out most of the Earth's population. The story follows a group of scientists and survivors trying to discover a cure for the undead virus, but, instead, they open a dangerous Pandora's box in the process.
Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman are producing, with Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson and Terry Dougas serving as executive producers. The studio and producers are eyeing a 2014 production start, with casting slated to begin very soon.
Announced back in July, the latest reboot (the second, for those keeping score) of George A. Romero’s Day Of The Dead was met with both the usual remake reactions and some wondering if a second chance might be able to improve on at least the first reworking. The man in charge of getting it shot is House At The End Of The Street director Mark Tonderai.He’s been involved for a while, writing the script with Lars Jacobson. The plot appears to hew fairly close to the original, in that it’s set several years after the start of the zombie plague and a group of scientists and survivors are sheltering in a seemingly secure location trying desperately to find a cure. Will Tonderai opt for modern, sprinting zomboids, or classic stumbling ones? No casting for this one has been announced just yet, though you’d imagine the »

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder’s career was kicked into high gear with his swell 2004 remake of the George Romero zombie classic Dawn of the Dead, and now it appears that a follow-up remake may finally be coming to fruition. After first announcing plans for a redo earlier this year, Deadline reports that Millennium Films has now tapped Mark Tonderai (House at the End of the Street) to helm a modern day remake of Romero’s 1985 Dawn follow-up Day of the Dead, which revolved around a small group of military officers and scientists dwelling in an underground bunker during the zombie apocalypse. The new film will take place “years after the zombie plague has wiped out most of Earth’s population” and will center on a team of scientists and survivors who, in trying to find a cure for the zombie epidemic, end up opening a Pandora’s box. »
