Breck Eisner’s remake of The Crazies, which will be helmed by George A. Romero film, has added two cast members. Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th) and Joe Anderson (The Ruins and Amelia) have signed on to star in the Overture remake. Danielle Panabaker is to star as the medical center receptionist, and Joe Anderson has signed on as the town’s deputy. Timothy Olyphant is set to star as the town sheriff.
The script, written by Scott Kosar and Ray Wright, is about the events that unfold in a small town in Kansas after a plane crash releases a deadly biological weapon.
George Romero has signed on as executive producer, along with Michael Aguilar, Rob Cowan, and Dean Georganis. The film is set to begin on March 5 in Georgia, along with additional shooting in Iowa.
Who thinks these two ladies have the chops to remake a classic?
