    Zombie fans everywhere get ready because george a romero's long rumored
    project is now finally going to happen this october they begin shooting the film. The film has been greenlit just recently and although the details are still
    up in the air on some parts of this movie. But i can confirm that they do have the money and a big name producer yet to be revealed or official company
    endorsing the film but george and the producers are aiming for a theatrical
    release possibly even NC-17 RELEASE. KNB effects team has signed on and the movies final title ic now called LAND OF THE DEAD

    I read that at fango a while ago.
    Great news. I have faith in Romero ... I'm sure he will deliver the goods.

    Unless there was some huge falling out between the two, the big name studio is more than likely Fox.

    Awesome. Looks like it'll be an R rated theatrical run with an unrated DVD later.

    It's called Land of the Dead again? I give up, I'm not going to keep up on this one.

    I love how a big name producer an official company have green lighted the project. Why haven't either of these been named? It sounds like a marketing ploy to get someone else to commit.

    You should be pretty pumped, Deaddevilman, considering how big of a Romero supporter you are. :D

    I agree! :banana:

    I have complete faith in him for this one. The remake of Dawn of the Dead proved that people can make good zombie films even in the days of CGI, so there's no doubt in my mind that Land of the Dead will be great. Unless of course Romero decides to take the easy way out and make his film totally "modern." :(

    Its good news. But it could end up being the worst of the 4 Dead films. Will it be from the same script with the Reckoning tank?
     
  18. Great news , I thought he was going to call his next dead epic " Twilight Of The Dead " as i read in Fangoria Mag # 171 . Though i believe " Lord Of The Dead " sounds like a better title , I hope this next film does well like his others and be extra great if Tom Savini was involved also .
     
  19. I mean " Land Of The Dead "

    Im a bit surprised Savini will not be doing the make-up effects this time around. Apparently KNB will be doing it (and thats deffently not a bad thing). I hope savini will be involved in this project in some form though.
