View Full Version : Romero is writing new Dead flick
05-15-2001, 10:38 PM
From Romero's official web site:
"DEAD 4: George is writing a fourth Dead film. It's not going to be called Twilight of the Dead. It's not going to be called Dusk of the Dead. That's as much as can be said, at this point."
This has been talked about on his site for a while, but it's the first official mention. I've read that he was, at first, going to make an internet-only film. this sounds like a regular flick.
can i hope to dream??? my god, the world REALLY needs a Romero zombie flick right now.

Tell that to the folks at Capcom, who really seem to be letting me down on this Resident Evil movie.

When I attended Cult Con in the fall to see Goblin, Claudio Simonetti stated at the conference that George Romero approached them to do the score for the NEW UPCOMING DEAD sequel (which a lot of questions followed as when it was coming out). I think that their music to DAWN kicked ass and helped add to its atmosphere. A classic film for all times, I just hope that Romero scores anothr hit with this one( Hopefully it will be better than Bruiser).

It's about time.

That will be fantastic! So long as he can get funding (maybe he should look to europe...)
Anyone know about that new zombie film with Savini in it? Is it out anywhere yet?

the Coming Attractions website has more promising news about the 4th Dead flick.
initial funding is reported to be coming from none other than Anchor Bay! we are talkin 3 to 4 million at this point; while Romero is looking for 5 to 6 mil.
the entire premise is not quite known, but central to the plot will be the concept that Romero has been talking about for some time now: in the future, after most of the living dead have been exterminated, the last human survivors have fortified themselves in a city, and they spend their time trying to ignore the remaining zombies (ala the homeless).
i'm not sure about the premise, but the prospect of a new dead flick could change my entire opinion about the 21st century....

OK - I'm officially going to allow myself to be optimistic about this, now, for the first time. ...Just a teensy bit.
News on this flick keeps getting better and better. You know if AB is financing it, you can expect one hell of a DVD. :D

on the way into work this morning i was browsing SciFi's AvantGo page on my Palm, and there was a blurb about the new Dead flick in their news section. at least it's more than just a forum and newsgroup rumor!

He should sting some Europeans for some production money, like Dawn of the Dead

Cool news, but I think he definitely needs more cash than what AB can offer him.

It'll make up for Hackmaster 2000. ;) :D
Sounds promising! I'm looking forward to another Dead film from Romero.

Wonder if Savini or KNB would do the make-up effects. If so, it would be one hell of a flick. If the budget is large enough, maybe it could be the Day of the Dead George hoped to have made.
