OK, the whole 3-D/remake trend is now officially getting out of hand. In the wake of the publicity/controversy scared up by the news that George A. Romero will/may/might not be doing a new dimensional version of Dario Argento’s DEEP RED comes word that one of his own films is getting the same treatment.
Variety reports that James Dudelson of Taurus Entertainment, who apparently can’t let go of the idea of following up Romero’s 1985 DAY OF THE DEAD (he previously produced 2005’s woeful in-name-only sequel DAY OF THE DEAD 2: CONTAGIUM, and Taurus was involved in the 2008 DAY update), is planning yet another redux, this time in 3-D. Apparently, film buyers at Cannes this year are requesting such projects because “3-D works well for certain genres, like horror,” Dudelson tells the trade, adding, “You can’t just slap a 3-D conversion on the wrong type of film.” DAY is evidently a new production—though producer Richard Rubinstein has been working on a dimensional conversion of Romero’s DAWN OF THE DEAD for some time now. No talent has yet been announced for the latest DAY.
