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.”

‘SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD’ Trailer Posted – Multi-Media And Theatrical Release Date Details

April 27, 2010

Still from 'SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD'


Source: ComingSoon.net

Written and directed by George Romero, ‘SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD’,

will be available on VOD, Xbox Live, PlayStation and Amazon this Friday, April 30th and in theaters on May 28th.

The latest chapter in the Zombie Apocalypse stars; Alan Van Sprang, Kenneth Welsh, Kathleen Munroe, Devon Bostick, Richard Fitzpatrick, Stefano Colacitti, and Athena Karkanis.

The film centers on a cozy Plum Island off the coast of Delaware where two families are locked in a struggle for power, as it has been for generations. The O’Flynn’s, headed by patriarch Patrick O’Flynn (Kenneth Welsh) approach the zombie plague with a shoot-to-kill attitude. The Muldoons, headed by Shamus Muldoon (Richard Fitzpatrick), feel that the zombies should be quarantined and kept ‘alive,’ in hopes that a solution will someday be found.

The O’Flynn’s, who are clearly outnumbered, are forced to exile Patrick by boat to the mainland, where he meets up with a band of soldiers, headed by Guardsman Sarge (Alan Van Sprang). They join forces and return to the island, to find that the zombie plague has fully gripped the divided community.
