A 3D CGI Remake Of “Living Dead”?

A 3D CG-animated remake of George A. Romero’s original classic “Night of the Living Dead” is in the works, but without the involvement of Romero himself says Heat Vision Blog.

“Night of the Living Dead: Origins” will update the tale by bringing out the characters’ backstories in a format described as “American-style anime” using new technology which allows filmmakers the ability to direct CG performances the same way they would direct real live actors.

Simon West and Jib Polhemus will produce the film. Romero himself meanwhile debuted his sixth ‘Dead’ film, “Survival of the Dead”, at the Toronto Film Festival.
