It’s been a long time coming, but then again some things are worth the wait. Especially hungry dead things looking to make you their next meal. Hold on to your asses, kids, for your first look at a new take on the classic George A. Romero film entitled Night of the Living Dead: Origins.
Directed by Zebediah De Soto, lending their likenesses and voices to the project, which showcases a zombie apocalypse in New York City, are Tony Todd as Ben, Danielle Harris as Barbra, Joe Pilato as Harry Cooper, Alona Tal (Jo on “Supernatural”) as Helen Cooper, Bill Moseley as Johnny (reprising his portrayal of the same character in Tom Savini’s 1990 NOTLD remake), Erin Braswell as Judy, Mike Diskint as Tom, Jesse Corti (“Heroes”) as a news reporter, and Cornell Womack (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) as a no-nonsense New York cop.
Director de Soto, who also pulls co-writing duties on the project, describes NOTLD: Origins, which will be in 3D, as “a living painting” and promises “no one has ever seen anything like this on the big screen.”
Dig on the teaser trailer below and look for more soon!
Heard from De Soto, turns out the below trailer is leaked test footage from two years ago made specifically to test some 3D effects work. It is not indicative to the final product.
