Just when I thought this rumor had gone away, it seems to have picked up new credence:
The I Walked With a Zombie remake now has a director in Adam Marcus, whose only previous horror credit is Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. Oh, yeah — that's the sensibility the hauntingly poetic I Walked with a Zombie — a dreamy reworking of Charlotte Bronte's feverishly perverse Jane Eyre — needs.
I'm comforting myself with the thought that it can't be any worse than Ritual, with Jennifer Grey. Made in 2001, it apparently opened in a handful of European markets before going to DVD in the US as Tales from the Crypt Presents: Ritual.
