'Chainsaw' Producers to Remake Romero's 'Day of the Dead'


Two of the producers behind January’s successful reboot of “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” have snapped up the remake rights to George A. Romero’s 1985 zombie classic, “Day of the Dead.”

Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell, who produced “Texas Chainsaw 3D,” which grossed $34.3 million early this year, said they acquired the rights from James and Robert Dudelson, whose Taurus Entertainment produced an earlier "Day of the Dead" remake in 2008 with Mena Suvari and Nick Cannon.

Grobman and Campbell said their company, Campbell Grobman Films, is now holding meetings with screenwriters about the best way to adapt the 1985 original about a group of military personnel and scientists hiding from the undead in a bunker.

The story is too old to be commented.

That last Chainsaw movie was all kinds of horrific - and not in a good way.
