UK actress and model Gemma Atkinson is currently shooting Night of the Living 3D Dead, a remake of the George Romero 1968 classic. Directed by Samuel Victor, the £200,000 budgeted movie is shot in full/real 3D, mostly in the UK with a few scenes in the United States. The creators have even put together a timber frame full scale reproduction of the original house for authenticity. The film is halfway through shooting and a teaser trailer is on its way.
Says director Samuel Victor:
Essentially I’m directing a true, respectful remake (not re-imagining, not prequel, not sequel, not butchering!) of Night of the Living Dead. I know there have been attempts in the past, none of which quite hit the mark, and some of which were frankly sacrilegious, but as true fans of the original we spent over 2 years in research and development, and having been in production of the film for over a year, making sure we get it RIGHT.
