Dennis Iliadis to Direct Dead@17

Dennis Iliadis to Direct Dead@17Last House on the Left remake director Dennis Iliadis accomplished the impossible in my eyes.

MTV says that Iliadis has recently signed to direct Dead@17, an adaptation of Josh Howard’s comic book series about a murdered teenager turned resurrected hero to combat harbingers of the apocalypse.

“Last I heard, they had attached Dennis Iliadis as a director,” Howard revealed. “And we’ve also set up some meetings at some studios that are interested in it. Right now meetings are taking place with potential writers.” This one is moving along very slowly, but the gears are turning.
