Brad over at Bloody-Disgusting just sent in word he got on the upcoming Day of the Dead remake over at Nu Image and Millennium Films regarding casting and shooting, here is the word we received:
Today Bloody-Disgusting received word from a very reliable source that Ving Rhames has been cast in the film, specifically to link the film to Uni’s Dawn remake. In addition, Mira Sorvino (Mimic) will be joining him. The film will be shooting in or around Bulgaria or Romania this month.
Gotta admit I like the casting and it will be nice to see Sorvino back behind the lense. Granted Mira hasn’t been MIA as of late, she just hasn’t made anything that really stood out. If they can repeat with Day of the Dead what was done with the Dawn of the Dead remake I think we can expect some fun times.
Steve Miner is directing the film in which a small group of military officers and scientists dwell in an underground bunker as the world above is overrun by zombies.
