So according to Variety, some dicklicker is doing a remake of George Romero’s 1973 film The Crazies.  In related news, George Romero has been remaking Night of the Living Dead since 1968.

Redo will be directed by Breck Eisner [Michael Eisner’s son, shocking -Ed.] ; Romero will serve as executive producer.

“Crazies” revolves around people in a small Kansas town who are beset by a virus that causes insanity and death after a mysterious toxin contaminates the local water supply.  Overture CEO Chris McGurk and chief operating officer Danny Rosett felt it was a good fit for the company’s expanding slate.

“We’ve been trying to move into horror fare that is clever and smart,” McGurk said.

It’s times like these I wish my site had a giant buzzer sound.
