NOTLD Remake Director AnnouncedGoon
Not long ago a little film called Night of the Living Dorks was released by Anchor Bay. It was a German zombie comedy that had me laughing the entire time. I know your thinking "Not another zombie comedy!" but this one was really good (my review). So an American remake was bound to happen.
Today The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Michael Showalter has been tapped to direct the film for Warner Independent. Showalter is a director/actor who worked previously on Stella and The Baxter. The script from which he will be adapting Night of the Living Dorks was written by Chris Bishop.
Described as "Revenge of the Nerds" meets "Shaun of the Dead," the story revolves around three not-so-cool school friends who decide to try an old voodoo ritual. When they later die in a car crash, they find themselves reborn as zombies and try to take adavantage of their new lifestyle.
