Word around Hollywood this morning is the news that Night of the Living Dead, is getting a remake.  Interestingly, the zombie horror film will not involve George Romero, but it will be a 3D CGI origin story.  CGI zombies?  Sign me up.

Titled “Night of the Living Dead: Origins,” the re-imagining is being directed by newcomer Zebediah de Soto and produced by Simon West and Simon West Productions president Jib Polhemus.

As much as I like the zombie genre (my Kung-Fu- Zombie-Western movie is still in the works), I can’t help but wonder what an all CGI zombie flick will bring to the table.  Sure, the ability to create a realistic looking human is great, and has done wonders for companies like Disney and Dreamworks, but pairing CGI with horror might make it hard to find an audience in the long run.
