Further, director Zack Snyder told SCI FI Wire that Universal Pictures has already approached him to make a follow-up to his hit zombie remake Dawn of the Dead, but that the movie won’t be a remake of George Romero’s own sequel, Day of the Dead. Snyder said, “It’s fascinating, because it’s the sequel to our movie. I was like, ‘We should do a sequel to Day’, but they weren’t interested.”
The director said that he and screenwriter James Gunn diverged from the rules Romero created for the original Dawn, which rendered it difficult to continue remaking Romero’s movies. “Inadvertently we created a whole different world. We went off, and in a lot of ways the rules that George created don’t apply at the end of this Dawn.”
No time-line yet for the project. We’ll keep you posted.
