Dan O'Bannon has said that the original idea for Return of the Living Dead was a more direct sequel to NOTLD. But since Day of the Dead was coming out they didn't want to compete with George. Anyone know what the original concept was? Or has this script, if there was one, ever seen the light of day? I just cought this film on TV again the other night. How much fun it was. I remember seeing it at the theater when it came out. I still have some of the posters they handed out at the theater.
