News: The Crazies

ShockTillYouDrop reports that the official synopsis for Breck Eisner's The Crazies remake made an appearance in the ShoWest brochure:

"In a terrifying tale of the "American Dream" gone wrong, four friends find themselves trapped in their hometown in The Crazies a reinvention of the George Romero classic directed by Breck Eisner from a screenplay by Ray Wright (Pulse, Case 39) and Scott Kosar (The Amityville Horror, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre). David Dutton (Timothy Olyphant) is sheriff of Ogden Marsh, a picture-perfect American town with happy, law-abiding citizens. But one night, one of them comes to a school baseball game with a loaded shotgun, ready to kill. Another man burns down his house after locking his wife and young son in a closet inside. Something is infecting the citizens of Ogden Marsh...with insanity. The few still sane find themselves trapped: Sheriff Dutton; his pregnant wife, Judy (Radha Mitchell); 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."

ShockTillYouDrop also reports that Danielle Panabaker, seen in the recent Friday the 13th, will be playing the role of Becca.
