Director revisits classic horror pic
producer Claudio Argento via his Opera Film shingle. Robbie Little’s The Little Company is preselling the pic in Cannes. Claudio Argento, who is Dario’s brother and regular producer, has penned the screenplay for Romero’s redo. Plan is to start shooting this fall in Canada. Though Dario Argento and George Romero go back a long way — he collaborated with Romero on zombie classic “Dawn of the Dead,” on which he has producer credit, and they also co-directed “Two Evil Eyes” in 1990 — Dario Argento will not be involved in Romero’s remake in any guise.
