  • George A. Romero's Land of the Dead

    over at http://dayofthedeadmovie.net , DJ says ...

    "I just got this Email today from avery reliable source.


    Just got off the phone with a VERY reliable source and am happy to announce [and pissed that our News/Rumors is down] that Romero's newest zombie movie has been given the green light - and we got the scoop!!

    After word/rumors of this installment have floated around for how long, Fox gave the green light just today [5.10.04] and this 4th zombie/dead installment, still being called 'Dead Reconing' is now actively looking at locations for shooting. 'Reconing' is said to take place after the events of Day of the Dead.

    George and several cast members from the original installments - Night of the Living Dead [Kyra Schon, Russ Streiner, and John Russo], Dawn of the Dead [Ken Foree, David Emge, Scott Reiniger, Sharon Ceccatti, and Clayton Hill], and Day of the Dead [Lori Cardille, Joe Pilato, Gary Klar, and Anthony DiLeo] - will also be at the Horrorfind Convention this August in Baltimore - can you smell a theme?"

    and
    today from http://www.creature-corner.com/news4...reckoning.php3


    QUOTE
    If all is true, then today is truly the day of the dead.

    Zombies are in. That's as far as Hollywood is concerned. Dawn of the Dead's success helped. Before that, Resident Evil lent a guiding hand too. Lions Gate is at work on developing a script called Flight of the Dead. Screen Gems has Resident Evil: Apocalypse opening this Fall. And, as we all know, George A. Romero is in the early stages of a project entitled Diamond Dead while he attempts to stir up interesting in his fourth Dead film Dead Reckoning.

    Well we've got a status report on both, actually.

    Ridley and Tony Scott's Scott Free Productions recently climbed aboard Diamond Dead to back up the rock 'n roll-themed project. Nothing new there. According to a source (who claims this has appeared in the trades too), however, Fox Searchlight has picked up Diamond Dead for development. Searchlight ushered 28 Days Later onto U.S. shores last year.

    But here's the big rumor that I'm, at the moment, trying to confirm:

    Fox has greenlit Dead Reckoning. That's what Horror-Web's "reliable source" has told them adding that location scouting is underway.

    We've got a few contacts of our own within Fox's walls and we're just waiting for word from them on this. Keep checking this page, as it'll probably be updated very soon!

                    Oh yes Dead Reckoning is coming for the 5000th time. Oh wait maybe I shouldn't get all hyperactive over repeat news that has been spread through fan boy nerd networks for years.

                      No man. They are scouting locations, so it's not even in pre-production yet. But, with Romero you don't have to worry about wasting time with the script and rewrites, he knows what he wants. Realistically, I would speculate a release date no earlier than Feb 2005. That's optimistic.

                          Jesus Christ! with Day of the Dead : Contagium , Dead Reckoning , Diamond Dead, Resident Evil : Apocalypse, Shaun of the Dead, Return of the Living Dead 4 and 5 to come and Dawn of the Dead and Undead so far this year, it's unreal.
