We told you earlier this week that the late George Romero’s daughter, Tina Romero, is working with frequent Romero collaborator Tom Savini on a new horror web-series that both she and Tom are directing episodes for, but now we’ve learned that she’s also planning on making her feature debut with a zombie film of her own!
In a chat with The Saunder Blog, Tina Romero (a DJ, dancer and filmmaker) laid out her plans for Queens of the Dead.
“Queens of the Dead is a fusion of two huge parts of my world: zombies and Gay nightlife,” she told the site. “It’s a tribute to my father as well as my entrée into the genre he grandfathered. I can’t say too much yet, but what I can tell you is that this film will have all the hallmarks of a George A. Romero classic: farce, politics, heroes, assholes, and most importantly, herds of silly and slow moving walkers that you can’t help but love. But I’m doing it Tina-style, and bringing the glitter, choreography, queers & queens.”
The film is said to depict “the zombie apocalypse, seen through the eyes of the patrons at a drag nightclub.”
Meanwhile, Romero’s son George Cameron Romero is also working on a zombie movie of his own. That project is titled Rise of the Living Dead.
