The latest trailer for Romero remake The Crazies has hit the net.
Directed by Breck Eisner, the man behind Sahara , the film sees a sheriff having a very bad day as the inhabitants of his small, idyllic town start to go all kinds of mental.
Timothy Olyphant stars as the put-upon lawman.
So good in TV's Deadwood (where he also plays a small-town sheriff), Olyphant has never really broken out on the big screen, despite supporting roles in big hits like Scream 2 and Die Hard 4 .
Hitman may have irrevocably ruined his chances for megastardom though.
This trailer certainly shows a little more restraint than the previous, explosion-heavy one, but we still need a bit of convincing.
That said, The Crazies is one of Romero's lesser-known movies, so perhaps it is ripe for a remake.
Check out the new trailer below:
You can judge the remake for yourself when it is released on 26th February.
