** V/H/S 85: Here's the poster for the upcoming anthology.
** CHRISTINE remake: In 1983, genre film legend John Carpenter took on a job adapting Stephen King's novel CHRISTINE onto film. In 2021, Sony and Blumhouse announced plans for a remake of the film, with Bryan Fuller penning the script and directing.
With the original turning forty this year, Total Film sat down with both Carpenter himself and the film's star Keith Gordon to discuss the movie's legacy. In the chat, Carpenter was asked about Fuller's reboot, saying: "Oh boy. Well, good luck to him. It will probably be better."
Gordon, meanwhile, had a much longer answer: "I think he's really talented and a good person to do it. I mean, I don't have a negative feeling about people remaking something, especially 40 years later. CHRISTINE could be told in a different way and not be an insult to the original. There's a very short list of untouchable classics that should never be remade – films where their groundbreaking-ness or idiosyncrasy is what makes them special. I wouldn't want to see anybody's remake of CITIZEN KANE, or 2001, or RAGING BULL."
Carpenter still regards his CHRISTINE as just "a job," one he needed after he was fired from another Stephen King adaptation – FIRESTARTER – because his own THE THING opened poorly with critics and at the box-office. (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)

** TWILIGHT OF THE DEAD: Filmmaker Brad Anderson (SESSION 9) has been set to direct TWILIGHT OF THE DEAD, the seventh and final installment of George A. Romero's official 'Living Dead' franchise at Roundtable Entertainment.
Romero had reportedly written a treatment for the movie before he passed in 2017. Joe Knetter, Robert Lucas, and Paolo Zelati, who also worked on the treatment with Romero, have now finished the script. First revealed back in 2021, the film unfolds on a tropical island and deals with the last humans on earth who are caught between factions of the undead. As usual, there's sociopolitical commentary amongst the genre trappings.
Suzanne Romero, John Baldecchi, Sarah Donnelly, Paolo Zelati and Stephanie Caleb produce. Shooting is expected to start later this year in Puerto Rico. Anderson says in a statement:
"George Romero's 1968 classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD may have been the first real horror movie I ever saw and its shock value, its keen social relevance, and even the means by which it was made were all hugely inspirational to me. This too is a zombie movie in which limbs fly and heads roll, but one that is also about social transformation, one that asks the question: What is it to be human? It is also a horror movie with "heart" and, dare I say, hope."
The project is entirely separate from an untitled sequel to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD at MGM, which Nikyatu Jusu is helming. The Romero estate isn't involved in that. (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)
