Overture Films has joined up with Bloody-Disgusting to give one lucky horror fan a chance to be a part of the upcoming remake of George A. Romero’s The Crazies, which is scheduled to begin shooting in Georgia in the coming months. The winner will be chosen by random drawing and will be afforded a trip to the set on April 3rd as well as an opportunity to be an extra in the film!
The Crazies is being directed by Sahara director Breck Eisner and stars Timothy Olyphant, Radha Mitchell, and Joe Reegan. Of additional interest is the involvement of cinematographer Maxime Alexandre, who was responsible for some great work with Alexandre Aja’s Haute Tension and the remake of The Hills Have Eyes. Hopefully he’ll be able to provide the same camera gloss that made those two films so visually appealing.
