Steve Miner Rumored to Direct "Day of the Dead"

If you're bound and determined to remake "Day of the Dead," you could easily do worse than to hire Steve Miner as your helmsman. Dread Central has revealed that their sources are hinting at Miner being headed for the director's chair of that very project.

Aside from a whole lot of television, Miner is known for directing a couple of the best sequels in the horror genre: "Friday the 13th Part 2" and "Halloween H2O." Anyone with that kind of track record on the sequel front surely has a shot at delivering a respectable remake, no?

But still, it's funny. If "28 Days Later" is responsible for the current groundswell of interest in zombie flicks, why isn't anyone other than George Romero producing original films (or at least sequels, as opposed to remakes) in the subgenre? It's not a Zen koan, folks; I want answers!--Pete Mesling
