Variety officially confirms the scoop that Ving Rhames and Mena Suvari will star in Millenium Films' remake of George A. Romero's Day of the Dead. They also confirm Black Films' scoop that Nick (Monster House) Cannon will also be starring. Michael Welch, Annalynne McCord, Stark Sands and hottie Christa Campbell round out the cast for the film, which follows a group of scientists and military personnel holed up in an underground bunker because the world above is overrun with zombies. The lumbering flesheaters eventually find a way in and wreak havoc on the scientists who've been experimenting on their undead brethren.
Steve Miner (Halloween H2O) is directing the zombie pic from a screenplay by Jeffrey Reddick, who penned the "Final Destination" franchise.
