Although it has been discussed before – on this site in fact – the Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things remake has become something “official.” Fangoria Entertainment and Anchor Bay Entertainment are teaming up to make the redo of Bob Clark’s ’70s zombie flick a reality. Drew Daywalt scripted the update and Tom Savini is on board to direct.
Filming is expected to begin later this year. The film – similar to the ’70s take – concerns a group of filmmakers who accidently awaken the undead.
Daywalt recently directed Leprechaun’s Revenge (aka Red Clover) for SyFy and Savini helmed a segment in this year’s release The Theatre Bizarre.
