Check This Out: Teaser Poster for The Crazies Remake
Whether you like it or not, Overture Films is remaking George Romero's classic 1973 film The Crazies, about the inhabitants of a small Kansas town who are beset by death and insanity after a plane crash lets loose a secret biological weapon into the water supply. The remake is being helmed by Breck Eisner, of only Sahara previously, while the script was written by Ray Wright (Pulse) and Scott Kosar (The Amityville Horror). Thanks to our friends over at Bloody Disgusting today, we've got our first look at a rather gnarly teaser poster. I'm pretty damn certain this will make a few unaware individuals slightly more interested.
That looks like one pissed off gas mask! As cool as this poster may look, let's not forget that this was originally a big remake in the works at Rogue Pictures first, but they handed it off to Overture instead. Timothy Olyphant and Radha Mitchell will star as two key residents of the town. Oddly enough, this hasn't even started shooting, but production will kick off in the next few months, with Overture already aiming to get this into theaters by September 25th. George Romero will actually be executive producing as well, which means it might not be too much of a departure from the original, at least in theory. Looking good?
