"Dawn" write it off just yet!

For those that have made up their minds that the upcoming remake of “Dawn of the Dead” is going to suck- I beg you to reconsider, judging by the names that this film is attracting.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ving Rhames and Sarah Polley are in final negotiations to headline the film, written by James Gunn.

“"The project, a reinvention of the 1978 horror film of the same name, goes into production next month. Written by James Gunn (Scooby-Doo), Dead is about a mysterious plague that causes the newly dead to rise from their graves and begin to eat the living. During the chaos, a core group of remaining humans takes refuge in a shopping mall. These include a young nurse (Polley), the police-uniformed Kenneth (Rhames), a mall employee who works at Best Buy, a gangbanger and his pregnant Russian girlfriend."

"Strike’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman will produce Dead with the film’s rights holder Richard P. Rubenstein. Tom Bliss is executive producing. Rhames, repped by ICM, next stars in the Barry Levinson-directed comedy Envy and the indie feature Sin. Polley, repped by WMA, is best known for her work in such films as The Sweat Hereafter, Guinevere and The Weight of Water."
