For a while there, Brad Anderson (SESSION 9, THE MACHINIST) was set to direct a remake of George Romero’s THE CRAZIES. Then the project fell dormant. According to a Variety article today though, Breck Eisner (SAHARA) is set to direct the new CRAZIES from a script by Ray Wright for Rogue pictures. Michael Aguilar and Dean Georgaris are producing and Romero will exec produce.
THE CRAZIES is a remake of George Romero’s 1972 film about a small Pennsylvania burg terrorized after a plane crash drops a biological weapon into the water.
Let’s hope for the best!
