Is a New Version of George A. Romero's Martin on Its Way?
We always knew it was only a matter of time before Hollywood, which has yet to meet a remake it doesn't like, turned its eyes toward George A. Romero's sole vampire tale, Martin, and apparent that time is now.
According to Bloody Disgusting producer Richard P. Rubinstein is prepping a new version of Martin -- is it a remake? is a sequel? -- about a young man, believing himself to be a vampire, who goes to live with his elderly and hostile cousin in a small Pennsylvania town where he tries to redeem his blood-craving urges.
With Rubinstein involved, we have a bit more hope than usual as he also worked on the original Martin, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Creepshow, and many more high quality films, including Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead redux. If this version of Martin can come close to the mark set by Snyder & Co., then sign us up!
