Night of the Living Dead: Origins casting news
It seems Night of the Living Dead has yet another redux on the way. This will be the third attempt at a remake of the classic, though it looks to be more of a prequel than anything. The other two remakes ranged from great (Night of the Living Dead 1990) to awful (Night of the Living Dead 3D) though this one looks to be shaping up nicely. The film has been described as a 3D CGI "American Anime".
As of now, the film stars Danielle Harris as Barbara, Joe Pilato as Cooper, with Mos Def currently in talks to play Ben. So, in short, casting is currently epic. The film itself could still go either way. Interested to see how this develops.
