Joel Schumacher to Wake the Dead

"Batman" eradicator Joel Schumacher – ok, so he’s redeemed himself since then, with "Tigerland" and "Phone Booth" – has signed to direct Dimension’s "Wake of Death", according to Freeze Dried Movies.

The film reportedly tells of four college kids who attempt to re-animate the dead. It is based off of a comic book series written by "30 Days of Nights" scribe Steve Niles and published through IDW Publishing, says the site.

Schumacher’s next flick is "Phantom of the Opera", due out for Chrissy.
