Horror classic Night of the Living Dead is being re-imagined as a 3D CGI film without George Romero’s involvement, The Hollywood Reporter writes. Night of the Living Dead: Origins will be directed by newcomer Zebediah de Soto, who also wrote the script with David R. Schwartz. The filmmakers said they wanted to bring out characters’ backstories and work on “an American-style anime.”
