“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 Reckoning’ is now actively looking at locations for shooting. ‘Reckoning’ 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 if that’s not enough zombies and Romero news for you… George is also working on pre-production for another zombie film called Diamond Dead, about a young women working with a zombie band on a mission to kill 365 people in one year’s time.”
Right now a few sites are working on confirming this scoop, so keep those fingers crossed!
