from dark horizons, good news that Romero is trying something unzombie.
Horror legend George A. Romero (“Dawn of the Dead,” “Night of the Living Dead”) is in advanced negotiations to direct a 3D remake of one of his peer’s most acclaimed works – “Deep Red”.
Dario Argento’s 1975 Italian cult classic follows an English pianist (David Hemmings) living in Rome who witnesses the brutal murder of his neighbor, a psychic.
With the help of a tenacious young reporter (Daria Nicolodi) he tries to discover the killer, an obsession endangering his life and that of everyone with whom he comes into contact as the killer starts taking their lives.
A children’s tune, a corpse entombed in the walls of a derelict house, and Argento’s trademark gruesome violence all play a part in the film which, along with his next film “Suspiria”, is often considered the auteur’s best.
Filming kicks off this Fall in Canada for release sometime next year.

Agreed. I don’t know what I mkae of more needless 3D, and I also doubt that digital (or the technicolor 35mm 3d format) will have spread widely enough for b-tier or “artsy” 3d movies to be watchable in 3d anywhere. I doubt, for example, that Herzog’s “Cave Paintings 3D” will be seeable by many in the format.
Romero’s made an interesting film or two, but these last couple zombie films were not. Hopefully he gets the budget together for some non-zombie, or even a non-horror film.
Sounds like disaster to me, but hopefully I’m wrong.
I somewhat doubt it will be made
a lot of Romero projects fail before production (like the Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon adaptation that would have been perfect)

No remakes and/or 3-Ds, please.

That would be good, but I love the original.
