Millennium Films’ Day of the Dead Remake Finds Director

Day of the Dead

Millennium Films has tabbed Mark Tonderai (“House at the End of the Street”) to direct a modern-day retelling of the George Romero’s cult zombie film “Day of the Dead.”  Tonderai wrote the script with Lars Jacobson.

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.

Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman are producers. Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson and Terry Dougas are executive producers. Beth Bruckner is co-producer. Millennium and Campbell Grobman Films are targeting a summer 2014 production.

Romero directed the original film back in 1985, and Millennium first remade it in 2008 with Steve Miner directing Mena Suvari and Nick Cannon. This version was forgettable at best.
