Dawn of the Dead in 3D and A Sequel!Goon
Yes folks you read that right. Fangoria recently spoke with Producer Richard Rubinstein about the goings on with Dawn of the Dead. Apparently Rubinstein is enlisting the help of In-Three, Inc. of Agoura Hill, CA to rerelease the film in true 3-D!
"When Mike Messina [another producer on the DAWN redux] and I began to investigate using In-Three's technique, I was very skeptical," Rubinstein tells Fango. "I couldn't see how it could be used without re-editing George's film, which I was not going to do. I was also concerned that converting a 29-year-old movie would not be competitive qualitatively with the new 3-D live-action features being shot today. I was wrong in both cases. George’s DAWN OF THE DEAD can be reformatted into 3-D without any editing, and the image looks spectacular! As it stands now, it will take about a year to complete the conversion of the whole film."
Besides this awesome announcement he also revealed that he is working on a direct sequel to Dawn of the Dead the original! Now that is really a shocker. Will they bring back Ken Foree and Gaylen Ross? Because without them, I doubt they really have much support from the original's fans. But we shall see in the coming months what becomes of the project. Keep it here for more!
