Romero remaking Argento’s ‘Red’ in 3D

Director revisits classic horror pic

Get ready for “Deep Red” in 3D — not by Dario Argento but from George A. Romero.

Romero is in advanced negotiations to helm a stereoscopic remake in English of Argento’s cult classic, according to sources.

The 1975 “Deep Red,” about a string of supernatural splatter murders, is considered Argento’s gem giallo and the film that established his international standing.

The Romero-helmed 3D “Deep Red” redo is being set up as an Italo-Canadian co-production by Italian 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.
