Looks like they will be running a cheap 3d process on the original dawn to squeesh a few more dollars from the dvd sales.
Interestingly, it appears the producer is also planning a new attempt at creating a big screen adaptation of the seemingly unfilmable Dune saga. David Lynch's much troubled effort is regarded as somewhat as a mixed bag, mostly viewed as one of the weakest Lynch films and to many a trainwreck. Scifi more recently attempted, more successfully and more faithfully, a miniseries adapatation of both Dune and Children of Dune:
DAWN OF THE DEAD: Producer Richard Rubinstein announced the upcoming revival of George A. Romero’s DAWN OF THE DEAD. Rubinstein, the man responsible for producing many of Romero’s films as well as the 2004 DAWN remake, is planning to rerelease the 1979 zombie epic in true 3-D! In-Three, Inc. of Agoura Hill, CA will be responsible for the “dimensionalization” process.
“When Mike Messina [another producer on the DAWN redux] and I began to investigate using In-Three’s technique, I was very skeptical,” Rubinstein told Fangoria. “I couldn’t see how it could be used without re-editing George’s film, which I was not going to do. I was also concerned that converting a 29-year-old movie would not be competitive qualitatively with the new 3-D live-action features being shot today. I was wrong in both cases. George’s DAWN OF THE DEAD can be reformatted into 3-D without any editing, and the image looks spectacular! As it stands now, it will take about a year to complete the conversion of the whole film.” Indeed, In-Three’s work has been hailed by George Lucas, James Cameron and Peter Jackson, among others.
Rubinstein also has plans to create a direct sequel to the original DAWN (!) and will be producing a new screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s DUNE, to be directed by Peter (THE KINGDOM) Berg. (thanks to Fangoria.com)
