Earlier today, Saban Films gave us our first look at their Day of the Dead remake, which is going by the title Day Of The Dead: Bloodline.
Up above, you’ll be able to catch a glimpse at one of the zombies set to appear in the flick along with the official poster. Neither give us very much to go on, unfortunately, but it’s nice that the studio is finally peeling back the lid on the pic as we’ve been waiting to see something from it for a while now.
Equipped with the tagline “Every day has its end,” the one-sheet teases that Bloodline will be a “bold reimagining of the George A. Romero classic.” Whether it’ll be more positively received than 2008’s remake remains to be seen, but we are hopeful. After all, we’re itching for a quality zombie flick right about now.
Starring Sophie Skelton, Marcus Vanco, Jeff Gum, Lorina Kamburova, Nick Loeb, Rachel O’Meara, Debbie Sherman, Luke Cousins, Nathan Cooper, and Cristina Serafini, the film is eyeing a release in theaters and digital platforms on January 5th, 2018 and the plot synopsis is as follows:
Bloodline is set in a post-apocalyptic, zombie-filled world where a former med school student is tormented by a dark figure from her past. The only thing is, he’s a half-human, half-zombie hell-bent on destroying her world.
So, definitely a bit different from the original then, but without any footage to chew on, it’s hard to start formulating an opinion. Still, we’ll remain cautiously optimistic than Day of the Dead: Bloodline will carve out a nice spot for itself amongst its peers and as soon as we have anything more on the pic, we’ll be sure to let you know.
