Romero Quits ‘Land’? Think Again…

Although Moviesonline claim that there’s been a rumor floating around the web that George Romero walked off the set and quit Land of the Dead a few weeks back- I don’t recall ever seeing or hearing this news. But either way, according to the site, Romero was just tired on the last day of the shoot and left five hours early. They write, “Land of the Dead will continue as planned, with the same estimated release date as far as we know.” In Romero’s new pic, the zombies having taken over the world and those left alive are confined to a walled-in city that keeps out the corpse corps. Anarchy rules the streets, with the wealthy insulated and living in fortified skyscrapers. Drama revolves around a group of scavengers who must thwart an attempt to overthrow the city while the dead are evolving from brainless slow-moving creatures into more advanced creatures.
