Romero Hoping to Shoot Two More 'Dead' Films Back-to-Back
There is no other name more synonymous with zombies than the legendary George A. Romero. His 6th "of the Dead" zombie film, Survival of the Dead, is finally due out in theaters later this month. But what's next? Well, our friends from ShockTillYouDrop just walked out of an interview with Romero earlier today and learned that he has "ideas for at least two more Dead projects that he would love to shoot back-to-back, schedule permitting." Of course, it depends on the success of Survival, but if it does well, "he says returning for two more entries would feel like home to him & bringing his family back together." Sounds good to me!
STYD also learned from Romero in the interview that these next two prospective films will "push the news ideas he's applied to the undead in Survival." I won't ruin what that idea is in Survival, but once you see it, it will all make sense, although I think he has plenty of ideas to run with (besides the one I'm thinking of) after Survival. The first four of the Dead films followed a big arc and presumably he'll finish another story arc with these four (including these final two). If you're a big fan of Romero and want to see more zombie movies from the legend, then you better make sure you hit theaters later this month when Survival arrives.
