Deadline bring word that Millennium Films has set Mark Tonderai to direct a modern-day retelling of the George Romero-directed cult zombie film ‘Day Of The Dead.’ Tonderai, best known for the Jennifer Lawrence-starring ‘House At The End Of The Street,’ wrote the script with Lars Jacobson. In this new version, years after the zombie plague has wiped out most of Earth’s population, a group of scientists and survivors attempt to find a cure, and instead open Pandora’s box.

The film, which co-stars Noah Emmerich, Ewan McGregor and Joel Edgerton, made headlines as filming began when director Lynne Ramsay dropped out following a three-day standoff with producer-financier Scott Seindorff. Following that, the film experienced numerous cast changes as Michael Fassbender dropped out and Jude Law and Bradley Cooper both joined the project and then exited. Edgerton took over the role vacated by Fassbender, while McGregor took on the villain character Law and Cooper were hired to play. Gavin O’Connor, the writer/director of ‘Warrior,’ helms ’Jane Got A Gun.’
‘Jane Got a Gun’ centers on Natalie Portman’s titular character, a woman whose outlaw husband (Noah Emmerich) returns home riddled with bullet wounds and barely alive, betrayed by criminal confederates that are hot on his heels.
