George A. Romero has signed on to write and direct “George Romero’s Diary of the Dead” following in the tradition of his 1968 cult classic “Night of the Living Dead” reports the trades.
With a story mixing elements of “The Blair Witch Project” and the long-running “Dead” series, the film will follow a group of college students shooting a horror movie in the woods who stumble upon a real zombie uprising.
When the onslaught begins, they seize the moment as any good film students would, capturing the undead in a “cinema verite” style that causes more than the usual production headaches.
Shooting begins October 11th in Toronto. Romero is also set to write and direct the thriller “Solitary Isle” for Hyde Park Entertainment.
Sounds cool, the only original Dead movie that I’ve seen was Night. I saw part of Land of the Dead (just this past week) where the Zombies break into the city that the living people have made to keep the zombies away and all the living people get attacked and one of the girls gets her belly button piercing ripped out. I turned it off at that point. But its good to see George Romero back to the franchise that he started and that he is being consistent about it and actually in charge of what is being made.
This is not conected with the Day of the Dead remake that is being made that is a sequel to the Dawn of the Dead, but isn’t being considered one… (which I spoke about here: http://socramforever.livejournal.com/207820.html) so tell me what you think.
