GEORGE ROMERO Turned Down Chance To Direct ‘THE WALKING DEAD’ Episode(s)

November 1, 2013

“They asked me to do a couple of episodes of The Walking Dead but I didn’t want to be a part of it. Basically it’s just a soap opera with a zombie occasionally. I always used the zombie as a character for satire or a political criticism and I find that missing in what’s happening now.” – George Romero

THRALL WORLD agrees with Romero that the vibe is entirely different on THE WALKING DEAD and the story it is attempting to tell versus the Romero ‘DEAD’ movies.

THE WALKING DEAD airs Sundays @ 8PM CST on AMC.

’28 MONTHS LATER’ In Development – DANNY BOYLE: “I Want To Direct It”

A recent quote from ALEX GARLAND – best known for writing the novel THE BEACH, and scripting the Danny Boyle-directed scifi film SUNSHINE and 28 DAYS LATER. – indicates that a 3rd installment of the zombie-plague movie – possibly called 28 MONTHS LATER – was in developmental hell:

“When we made ’28 Days Later,’ the rights were frozen between a group of people who are no longer talking to each other. And so, the film is never going to happen unless those people start talking to each other again. There is no script as far as I’m aware.”

Despite that, director DANNY BOYLE has indicated that the movie may indeed be moving forward:

“There’s another 28 Days Later in the works.” When asked if the title would be 28 Months Later, Boyle replied “In theory, yes.” Immediately the next question was if he’d be producing, to which Boyle responded, “Actually I want to direct it.”

It’s Official: ZACK SNYDER To Direct New SUPERMAN Movie With GENERAL ZOD As Villian

Zack Snyder has been chosen to direct the new installment of Superman for Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures. Snyder was on a short list of directors that I recently revealed met with the studio as well as producers Chris Nolan and Emma Thomas. Other choices at the time included helmers Tony Scott, Matt Reeves, Jonathan Liebesman, and Duncan Jones.

Said Snyder:

“I’ve been a big fan of the character for a long time, he’s definitely the king of all superheroes, he’s the one. It’s early yet, but I can tell you that what David and Chris have done with the story so far definitely has given me a great insight into a way to make him feel modern. I’ve always felt he was kind of awesome. I’ll finish Sucker Punch and get right at it.”

Also from Snyder:

“I defintely expressed my love for the character and interest in seeing him treated right. The character deserves to be loved. It’s his time.”

Also an update on the villian that SUPERMAN will be facing in the film:

Goyer is writing the script, which is rumored to have, like “Superman Returns,” a Richard Donner Superman connection. In the movie’s case, it’s a villain connection: General Zod.

Read more HERE and HERE.

Snyder proved without a doubt his understanding of epic comic book characters in the super hero world with his very underrated and unduly criticized take on ‘WATCHMEN’. ‘300’ was also a fantastic translation of the FRANK MILLER retelling as was the DAWN OF THE DEAD remake. The upcoming SUCKER PUNCH and the animated LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS: THE OWLS OF GA’HOOLE look impressive from a distance… Throw in the producing savvy of one CHRISTOPHER NOLAN and SUPERMAN could very well top THE DARK KNIGHT in terms of story and all around amazingness.

A tall order? Sure. But these are two of the best visionaries out there right now so if anyone were be able to leap tall stories in a single bound it would be them.
