Looks like a remake of the George Romero masterpiece Dawn of the Dead is in the works. My Tivo downloaded a preview that I watched immediately. Then I went to the website for more details. Not a lot there. But it looks promising. It’s supposed to be released in March.
I do have some concerns, as every card-carrying zombie fan will after the remake of Night of the Living Dead. That remake just didn’t stand up, but the original was a tough act to follow. I did like the way Barbara’s character was recast from catatonic terrorized victim to an ass-kicking woman of the ’90s.
I’m particularly interested in how the new Dawn will handle the whole consumerism/mall satire that the original did so well. Also, the original was filmed in a mall a few miles from where I grew up, which added considerably to my experience of the film. It was pretty cool seeing zombies feast on bikers in front of stores that I’d actually shopped in.
