The first trailer for Breck Eisner’s remake of George Romero’s 70s plague classic, The Crazies, has finally landed online. In a terrifying tale of the American Dream gone wrong, four friends find themselves trapped in their hometown when an unknown toxin turns the citizens into homicidal maniacs. A small-town sheriff David Dutton (Tommy Olyphant) tries to maintain law and order while protecting his pregnant wife, Judy; Becca, an assistant at the medical center; and Russell, Dutton’s deputy and right-hand man. Forced to band together, an ordinary night becomes a struggle for survival as they try to get out of town alive.
The scheduled release date for the remake is February 26, 2010.
