Director Announced for The Crazies RemakeGoon
Not long ago we learned that The Crazies remake was still very much alive. So here we are now with a director and a studio on board. Rogue Pictures have bought the rights from Paramount where it was stuck in turnaround. Variety has announced that Breck Eisner will direct a script by Ray Wright.
The best news out of this is that George Romero is involved as Executive Producer so at least that is good news. The film is about a small Pennsylvania burg terrorized after a plane crash drops a biological weapon into the water. I'm not entirely convinced with Breck Eisner as director. I've never seen any of his prior films so we will just have to see what he has to offer.
