Is That 'Crazies' Remake Back on Track?


Recommended Posts

What the "HELL" is wrong with Hollywood, & Re-making great cult films! Why Can't Hollywood just clean up the original prints & Re-Release them back in to theaters, that way Hollywood earns it's money back to make better, more original films!


I mean have you seen what they did with the Re-make of "Prom Night"? LOL! & it's PG-13! to! Hello Hollywood, you make crapy films like "Hostel", & Re-Hash "Saw", but can't give a decent up-date to "Prom Night"

Here is the Theatrical Trailer for "the " Re-Make" of Prom Night" (2008)

Prom Night (2008) Theatrical Trailer ..it's kinda bad! Funny to!




..Oh BTW here is the atricle..Thanks to Cinematical.com


I could have sworn I did a little piece on the planned remake of George Romero's The Crazies, but the Cinematical search function seems to believe otherwise. But a while back it was mentioned that director Brad Anderson and screenwriter Scott Kosar (who once collaborated to give us The Machinist) very well might be getting back together for a remake of Romero's 1973 infection thriller ... and then we heard nothing.


Odds are that Mr. Anderson has moved on to other projects, but according to gory sources, the remake is not nearly dead. Seems that producers Dean Georgaris and Michael Aguilar have tapped a second writer (Ray Wright) to help the project along. We'll let Mr. Wright's debut (the wretched Pulse remake) slide and look forward to his Case 39, which stars Renee Zellweger and opens on August 22.


When the producers decided to finally ash-can this remake because nobody aside from hardcore horror fans even remember The Crazies (which means the title isn't nearly as marketable as Halloween, Chainsaw or Prom Night), we'll be sure to let you know.

I love "The Crazies" aka "Code Name:Trixie." I have the DVD, it's great. What we don't need is a scene by scene remake,like Halloween, Psycho and the ilk. According to IMDb, George A.Romero is or has written a screenplay for the 2008 "Crazies". He has also written a screenplay for A Untitled George A. Romero Diary of the Dead Sequel (2009) I think he is also involved in Steve Miner's (Halloween H20: 20 Years Later ) remake of "Day of the Dead".
