A while back (here, to be exact) we first told you about a new film that Toolbox Murders writers Jace Anderson and Adam Gierasch are writing for Tobe Hooper, which at the time was being described as zombies meets Deliverance, dealing with a mine that had collapsed years earlier, trapping some miners inside, and what happens when the mine is re-opened. There was no title at the time, but the idea was there and it sounded cool enough.

This morning I got an e-mail from Jace with not only the poster you see below for the film, but word that the script has changed dramatically since we first reported on it, that they’re re-shaping it in some very cool ways and hoping to bring some new blood to the world of the undead. Shooting is expected to start in June for Tobe Hooper’s Zombies, a title that just sounds way too good rolling off the ole tongue.

Zombie movies seem to be the 'in' thing now, and I couldn't be happier because it gives me more flicks to mull over when it reaches it's inevitable down swing in popularity.

Tobe Hooper is one of my favorite directors. I'm sure this will be worth seeing. I can't wait.

All I expect is an average zombie flick with Fulci-like gore and violence. I don't think that's a tall order.

I love the NOTLD homage on the poster. See the similarities anyone?

WTF?!?! Does this mean Mortuary is getting canned? Or is this ANOTHER zombie project Tobe has?

Sounds like Mortuary is getting canned, or put on the back shelf, OR handed to another director. Tobe's got his plate full. Not bad for a director that hasn't made a mainstream flick in over a decade.
