Post Day of the Dead remake (yet another one)
I'm wondering how much George Romero's ass hurts from all the rapings that his legacy has suffered, because he needs to bend over and grab his ankles as another one is coming:

The visionary filmmakers behind the recent Texas Chainsaw Massacre reboot are remaking Day of the Dead

How much more can he be pissed on?

Probably not that much considering that most people thought that both "Diary" and "Survival" sucked major ass themselves. I for one enjoyed the DOTD remake and am not at all against the idea of another one.

They're churning these things out on an assembly line at this point.

Can't wait until they run out of movies and have to cycle back around to the original Night of the Living Dead. Again.

An interesting fact, the first remake of NOTLD was done because the original film had not been properly copyrighted, so a remake was done to secure the copyright.

NOTLD still has the same copyright status it always has: public domain, freely available to use and reprint for all.

Cool! Now I can ignore it just like this one!
