Overture Films has announced that it will produce and distribute "The Crazies," a "reinvention" loosely based upon the George Romero film. Breck Eisner is set to direct the screenplay written by Ray Wright (from an earlier draft by Scott Kosar), about "the inhabitants of a small Kansas town beset by insanity and then death after a mysterious toxin contaminates their water supply." Overture's Sean Furst, EVP Production & Acquisitions, will oversee production for the studio. [Peter Knegt]
