VIVICA A FOX BATTLES THE UNDEAD IN NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD REMAKE

CineTel Films, the company that brought us remakes if The Amityville Horror and I Spit on Your Grave, is set to take on yet another classic. This time, they’ve feasted their eyes on a fifth remake of the George A. Romero zombie classic Night of The Living Dead.

Christopher Ray will direct, and Vivica A Fox (Kill Bill, Independence Day) will play the lead role originated by Duane Jones.

In the latest remake, “Amidst a worldwide event where the dead awake and roam the earth as zombies, a small group of human survivors struggle to stay alive and fight off the wandering zombies who are intent on eating them and turning them into the Walking Dead.

I hope this version will be as exciting as Zac Snyder’s remake of Dawn of the Dead, and not since her short stint as Vernita Green in Kill Bill have I been this excited to see Vivica mame and dismember some zombies.

I know some are annoyed that Night of the Living Dead is being remade yet again, but I think it will be interesting to see this film, which touched on race and class in the late 60s will be told in modern day from the perspective of a strong, black woman.

Night of the Living Dead is set to go into production in 2021.
