This could go wrong, very fast. Can a Night of The Living Dead re-imagining work and can it work entirely in CG? Check out the official details below.
In what sounds like an attempt to spread the demographic net as wide as possible by producers, the new “Night Of The Living Dead” movie will be completely animated and look like moving artwork from a comic book.
Remember A Scanner Darkly? Yeah, this could end up like that.
New production company Meyers Media Group has announced that it has picked up international rights to writer/director Zebediah De Soto’s Night of the Living Dead: Origins 3D from Simon West Productions. Simon West (director of Con Air) will produce alongside Jib Polhemus (The Mechanic), Gus Malliarodakis and Matty Mangone-Miranda.
In the film, New York lies in ruin when zombies have overtaken the city. For the few people left alive there is only one dream – survival. That includes Ben (Tony Todd) and Barbra (Danielle Harris), two survivors who find themselves trapped and fighting to escape the hordes of undead that walk the streets.
Shot completely in a CG environment using stereoscopic 3D, using next gen facial capture technology, the film aims to look like a marriage between a graphic novel and modern animation.
