Dawn of the Dead remake by Universal Pictures. Cast: Sarah Polley, Ving Rhames, Mekhi Phifer, Hannah Lochner, and Kevin Zegers. Movie News DAWN OF THE DEAD starts filming Picture shooting in Canada ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---- Dateline: Monday, June 16, 2003 By: PATRICK SAURIOL By: News Editor Source: Universal Pictures Principal photography on DAWN OF THE DEAD has begun. Universal Pictures issued a press release today stating that Zack Snyder's picture has begun shooting in and around the city of Toronto, Canada. The movie is scheduled for release sometime in 2004. Universal described the remake's storyline as follows: "In DAWN OF THE DEAD, an unexplained plague has decimated the world's population and yet...the dead aren't dying. They've become zombies, stalking endlessly in a constant quest to feed on the flesh and blood of the few remaining living. "A ragtag group of desperate survivors in a Wisconsin town seek refuge in a large indoor shopping mall, where they must learn not only to protect themselves from the ever-increasing zombie horde, but also to co-exist with each other as one of the last bastions of humanity. Sealed off from the rest of what used to be the world, the group uses every available resource (both within and without) in their against-all-odds fight to remain alive and human." Universal also beefed up the known list of crewmembers working on the film, which now includes director of photography Matt Leonetti (2 FAST 2 FURIOUS), production designer Andrew Neskoromny (THE CORE), costume designer Denise Cronenberg (SPIDER), prosthetics make-up designer David Anderson (both MEN IN BLACK films) and editor Niven Howie (LOCK, STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS). The film's producers are original DAWN producer Richard P. Rubinstein, Marc Abraham (SPY GAME) and Eric Newman (THE EMPEROR'S CLUB). Exec producers are Tom Bliss (THE HURRICANE), Armyan Bernstein (AIR FORCE ONE) and Dennis E. Jones (VIRUS).

Any movie that has an M16, raiding a post SHTF gun store for supplies, and target practice in a post SHTF shopping mall DOES NOT SUCK. Do push ups ‘till I get tired.

They are also doing a re-make of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Wasn't "Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The New Generation" the remake? It was real bad. It could have been partially redeemed if they showed some titties though.

OK, someone give me a breakdown of the Zombie movies. It was about a decade ago that my friends and myself rented them all and watched them, marathon style. Like for instance, which one was the first, which one was in the mall,...etc.

How can they do a re-make of a documentary?

No it wasn't a re-make. In fact they originally titled it Texas Chainsaw Massacre 4. Anyway here is a link to the new one due out 2004. [url]http://us.imdb.com/Title?0324216[/url]

Well, George Romero signed an agreement with the Darrow Chemical Company and the feds that he was only allowed to fictionalize stories based on the 1966 2-4-5 Trioxin Pennsylvania VA Hospital incident. This explains why the big studios don't want to help him with his 4th dead film due to the threat of lawsuits. Oh by the way, George Romero has absolutely nothing to do with this movie. John Russo, one of the producers of Dawn sold the rights to Universal and is trying to sell the rights to Day. It kind of sucks, but there just ain't any good zombie movies coming out these days.
