So, news broke today that Bloody Disgusting nabbed exclusive pics of Johnathon Schaech [we’ve previously reported Schaech’s starring] duded up as his BUB inspired character MAX, alongside Sophie Skelton as Zoe Parker for the new Day Of The Dead. CHECK EM’ OUT Below:
Schaeth posted this additional one like an hour ago [To me writing this]
Schaeth previously posted on his official Twitter page a photo of himself getting prepped for makeup on #NationalSelfieDay captioning the photo “Happy #NationalSelfieDay everyone! (The #zombieapocalypse is coming)”, with a cast list visibly behind him. The photo was then translated to be of him prepping for Day Of The Dead.
According to the cast list behind him and IMDB, the Day of The Dead remake cast has been revealed to star: Marcus Vanco, Jeff Gum (Exeter, The Vault), Lorina Kamburova (Nightworld, Leatherface, Death Race 4), Nick Loeb, Rachel O’Meara, Debbie Sherman, Luke Cousins, Nathan Cooper, and Cristina Serafin with Hector Hernandez Vicens (The Corpse Of Anna Fritz) set as director.
But now even more current news broke that the new Day Of The Dead is not a remake! Schaeth replied to a fan nearly an hour ago [of me writing this] “it’s not a remake. It’s Day of the dead title with an added noun. I’ll let y’all know. When I can share”.
If it’s not a remake is the film some sort of continuation or reboot?!
Day of the Dead follows a former medical student tormented by a dark figure from her past, who happens to be a half-human, half-zombie hell-bent on destroying her.
Day Of The Dead’ has already begun filming and will be produced by Campbell Grobman Films, the production company behind the upcoming Texas Chainsaw Prequel, Leatherface.
No confirmed release date as of yet. But I’ll keep you Horror Fuel readers in the loop.
