Time for Another Romero Remake?

And it's got nothing to do with 'Halloween 3'

by | August 1, 2007 | Comments

We’ve already seen the remakes of Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead, plus there’s another pair of Romero remakes (Day of the Dead and The Crazies) on the horizon… So what’s left from the filmmaker’s back catalog?

Apparently the legendary horror-maker wants to mount a remake of his 1972 thriller Season of the Witch (aka Hungry Wives). He told IGN Movies that he thinks the story could easily make sense these days: "I think it could be pertinent in a different way … There are still women’s issues and there are still jerky guys like [Joan Mitchell’s] husband, still brutal – to say nothing of being insensitive, but actually brutal – so I’d like to remake it."

The director explains that his original movie isn’t precisely what he’d hoped for, what with the tiny budget and all, but with horror remakes all the rage this decade, why not take Season of the Witch out for another spin?

In addition to the director’s upcoming Diary of the Dead, Romero also has some hush-hush plans for a zombie-related comedy. Yep, a comedy.
