George A. Romero Remaking Dario Argento’s Deep Red in 3D?

Okay, our minds are officially blown. Blown we tell you. The strangest and probably most interesting report out of Cannes today has come in the form of news that legendary filmmaker George Romero will be remaking the also legendary Dario Argento’s Deep Red in 3D. Two words … holy shit.

The story came today via Variety that Romero is indeed in advanced negotiations to helm a stereoscopic remake in English of Argento’s cult classic splatterfest.

Claudio Argento, who is Dario’s brother and regular producer, has penned the screenplay for Romero’s redo. For those who don’t remember or haven’t seen Deep Red (for shame), dig on the video below to get one hell of an eyeful. Look for more on this soon as the plan is to start shooting the flick this fall in Canada.

    I think Deep Red is one of Argento’s best.

    This is a very odd project…
