Not-so-exclusive interview with Jeffrey Reddick, Writer of 'Day of the Dead'

This interview is so 'non-exclusive', it's not even written by us, done by us or even on our site, but here's a link to it on all we did was read it.

Personally, I just like reading interviews that reveal how people got to where they are. Granted, the "Day of the Dead" remake is shit and Reddick's legacy is the "Final Destination" films... and I'm not saying that's good or bad, I'm just throwing it out there. The "Final Destination" series is actually quite good and, maybe the script for "Day of the Dead" is better than the actual film, which is, like I said, shit. In fact, he kind of eludes to the fact that 'he's only the writer' and that Steve Miner, the director, did his own thing at parts. More specifically, it appears that Miner is responsible for the fact that zombies seem to have "Matrix"-like abilities in this film... and that was one of my biggest quams, it's just wrong on so many levels.

Anyways, check out the article. He gives some great insight into how he got started and what he's up to.
