George A. Romero Revisits Zombie Territory
Mon, 06 Oct 2008 10:57:14
Horror master George A. Romero is currently shooting an untitled horror film featuring his signature flesh-eating zombies. The director wrote the script and began shooting in Ontario last week.
The story is vintage Romero, centering on a group living on an isolated island off the coast of North America. Their relatives rise from the dead only to eat their living kin. The island inhabitants split over whether they should kill their resurrected relatives or try to capture and preserve them in hopes of discovering a cure. Alex Van Sprang, Kenneth Welsh, and Devon Bostick are all in the cast. Van Sprang and Bostick are alumni of the commercially successful Saw franchise, having appeared in the third and fourth films, respectively.
