Yeah, that's a big WTF. I found this on shocktillyoudrop, dating from May 2010:
"Film markets often give way to surprising, sometimes bold, film announcements and horror fans were bowled over on Sunday when Claudio Argento announced George Romero was going to remake Dario Argento's Deep Red in 3D.
But wait just a minute, says Romero. In an interview with Fangoria, he tells Tony Timpone that there "is no deal" locked for him to direct. Furthermore, he won't do it "if Dario doesn't approve.""
And then this story from August 2010 says that the project is dead: http://www.filmstalker.co.uk/archives/2 ... emake.html
