First Look: Timothy Olyphant in The Crazies Remake
So we've written about the remake of George Romero's The Crazies a few times previously, including the first teaser poster and their Twitter account, but this is our official first look at a photo from the movie. Bloody Disgusting debuted this new photo in conjunction with their set visit report, which is a pretty good read if you're really into this. Seen below is Timothy Olyphant, believe it or not (he looks a lot more like Adam Baldwin), with some battle wounds from fending off the hordes of "crazies" in his town. Unfortunately this is all we get to see for the time being, as the production is still shooting in Georgia.
In addition to Olyphant, The Crazies stars Radha Mitchell, Danielle Panabaker, Joe Anderson, Joe Reegan, and a whole town full of crazy Kansas locals. The story revolves around 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. This is a remake of George Romero's 1973 film The Crazies and is being directed by Breck Eisner. Overture Films will be releasing it in theaters on September 25th later this year. You can follow the official Twitter for the film or stay tuned right here for more updates on The Crazies as they arrive.

Timothy Olyphant is a pretty good actor, I think this should be pretty good... hopefully... The original will probably always be better but hopefully it's decent and fun.

Hahahaha! I thought it was Adam Baldwin too for a second. It's the facial hair and the overall angle of the photo makes his head look bigger. good one!

I live in the town where part of the movie is being filmed. The sheriff's office is actually our bank. It's very strange to watch the process. I can see the lights from my front window. The whole main street is closed off. I can hear the tech people yelling from my front yard.

Yeah, I also live in the town the remake of The Crazies is being made. It thrills me, but Im getting sick of being blocked in at my house. It's driving me nuts. I can't stay in one place for a long period of time. Even the filming bothers me, I can't sleep some night because they have huge lights that were once right above my house. I hate it all.
