i read this over at joblo.com : SciFi Wire is reporting that Universal is hot to get a sequel moving to the recent remake of DAWN OF THE DEAD...but they don't want to remake the sequel to the original film DAY OF THE DEAD. Confused? Director Zack Snyder explains that he pitched the idea of remaking DAY to Universal as a sequel but that they weren't interested and were instead focused on making a new sequel to DAWN. Also complicating things is that Universal is the studio behind George Romero's LAND OF THE DEAD, currently filming. While Universal is anxious to see a new sequel, it's not necessarily a definite it will happen. Snyder says, "We kicked around some ideas, but I don't know what we're going to do with it. We've talked about it. I met with (screenwriter) James (Gunn). I met with the producers. The heat comes on and off of that." Zombies are quite the en vogue monsters lately with DAWN OF THE DEAD and SHAUN OF THE DEAD both finding success this year. Snyder is attached to direct an adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel 300 about the fabled Battle of Thermopylae.
