Is this a sequel to the 2004 remake of 'Dawn of the Dead'?
No, this is only a remake of Day of the Dead, which is the 1985 sequel to the original Dawn of the Dead (1978).Ving Rhames appears in Day of the Dead (2008) (V) and Dawn of the Dead (2004), but as two different characters. It's likely the studio cast him in Day to confuse audiences into believing their straight-to-video flick is a sequel to the popular Dawn.
