Danielle Harris is getting some help fighting off the zombie hordes in writer-director Zebediah De Soto’s “re-imagining” of George Romero’s horror classic Night of the Living Dead, titled Night of the Living Dead: Origins.
THR reports that Bill Moseley (1990’s Night of the Living Dead), Joe Pilato (Romero’s Day of the Dead), Alona Tal (Supernatural), Jesse Corti (Heroes) and Cornell Womack (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) have joined the previously cast Harris to do voice work on the CGI-animated movie. Moseley plays Johnny, Harris’ brother, while Pilato and Tal will play the voice of the Coopers, the couple who argue to stay in the basement in Romero’s original. Corti will play a no-nonsense New York cop and Womack a news reporter.
Moseley and Pilato’s ties to Romero are no coincidence, and De Soto calls the casting “a nod to Romero fans. Horror is a genre and zombie movies are a subgenre that people have been following for years and years.” However, De Soto has plans to make his Night of the Living Dead different from the original.
