They remade Night of the Living Dead. They remade Dawn of the Dead. So... simple math dictates that someone absolutely must come along and give us all a remake of Day of the Dead. And in about five years, someone will probably want to remake last summer's Land of the Dead.

The new-fangled Day of the Dead, based on the 1985 George Romero flick, will begin shooting in Romania later this summer. Horror veterans Steve Miner (Friday the 13th Part 2, Halloween: H20) and Jeffrey Reddick (Final Destination, Tamara) are behind the camera, and just now comes word that the cast will include Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino and, returning from the last remake, Ving Rhames as a large man with a gun.

For those unfamiliar with the third Dead flick, it deals with an underground military complex full of jerkface soldiers and the few zombies they're experimenting on. Until act III, anyway...

UPDATE: Recent news from indicates that it's NOT Mira Sorvino who'll star in the zombie sequel remake, but Mena Suvari. Common mistake, I bet.
