Night Of the living Dead back in 3D?

There is talk that Night of the living Dead will be back in 3D although it had some devastating results when it first came in 3D a couple years ago. Apparently it will not be done by George Romero. It will be Directed by Zebediah De Soto who directed the short film 'War Dogs' and produced by Simon West (When a Stranger Calls) THR Blog reported this and said

"On the story front, De Soto, who wrote the script with David R. Schwartz, wants to update the tale partially by bringing out the characters’ backstories and make what he called “an American-style anime.” The latter will be done by using new technology the filmmaker is inventing. De Soto, along with partner Gus Malliarodaki founded New Golden Digital, a digital effects company which develops cutting-edge hardware and software.The duo created and designed a real-time effects system, known as 'The Beast', which allows filmmakers the ability to direct CG performances the same way they would direct real live actors.  The aim of the process is to make tennis balls on a stick representing real people or monsters a thing of the past by allowing actors interact with CG elements as if they are tangible." 

The movie will be titled Night of the Living Dead: Origins Since De Soto who co-wrote the film wanted to add a little bit of a back story to the new version.

Sidenote:We're interested to see how this will turn out.It seems like remakes are no longer done because the movies are old and they deserve a reboot and an update. They are done at whatever stage of the film's age and are not done with the intentions to improve the film, but to improve pockets. But then again It might turn out to be great and fun we'll have to wait and find out.
