Miner Tapped to Direct "Day of the Dead" Remake

by | November 1, 2005 | Comments

Variety reports some good news/bad news for the horror fans. The bad news is that Millennium Films has decided to mount a remake of George Romero‘s "Day of the Dead." The good news is that they at least got a veteran horror-slinger to direct the thing.

"Romero wrote and directed the original, which follows a group of scientists and military personnel holed up in an underground bunker because the world above is overrun with zombies. The lumbering flesheaters eventually find a way in and wreak havoc on the scientists who’ve been experimenting on their undead brethren."

The "Day" remake will be written by "Final Destination" scribe Jeffrey Reddick, and the director will be Steve Miner. In no way a stranger to the genre, Mr. Miner has directed such fright flicks as "Friday the 13th Part 2," "Friday the 13th Part 3," "House," "Warlock," "Halloween: H2O," and "Lake Placid."
