Night of the Living Dead GCI Remake

 THR’s Heat Vision blog is reporting that George Romero’s zombie classic, Night of the Living Dead, is going to be remade into a 3D CGI film by first-time director Zebediah de Soto.  The project, titled Night of the Living Dead: Origins, will have no involvement from Romero. De Soto mentioned that he wants to focus on the character’s backstories, and aim for it to look like an “American-styled anime”.

Origins will join the company of a multitude of revisions/reimaginings/remakes of Night of the Living Dead. The original film has been in the public domain for some time now, making it a really cheap target for these sorts of projects. Most recently there was  Night of the Living Dead 3D, with Sid Haig that I heard sucked and there’s also an upcoming collaborative remake, Night of the Living Dead Reanimated.

Look, I'm all up for any zombie film - and a reimagining/remake of the original Night of the Living Dead may not be a bad idea at this point - especially considering there are loads of people that have never seen it. I'm a bit confused by the comparison of CGI with "American anime". But who am I to try to explain the vision that De Soto has. Let's just hope this one turns out well.
