Syfy to Remake 1985 Zombie Movie ‘Day of the Dead’ into a TV Drama


Syfy have announced a greenlight adaptation for a 10-episode show, based from the 1985 zombie movie “Day of the Dead” from director George A. Romero.

Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas are attached as the showrunners and writer of the show with Cartel Entertainment as the producer.

The remake will tell the intense story of six strangers trying to survive the first 24 hours of an undead invasion. It is described as an ode to Romero’s famous flesh-eaters that reminds us that sometimes all it takes to bring people together is a horde of hungry zombies trying to rip them apart.
