Officially Licensed, Long Unproduced Sequel to ‘Night of the Living Dead’ Coming from Original Team

Published

Fifty years later, a sequel is being unearthed.

A whole lot has been happening in the world of Night of the Living Dead, this year being the landmark film’s 50th anniversary and all, and we’re learned this week that Living Dead Media is next plotting the return of the original classic in the form of an official sequel!

Living Dead Media told us this week…

“Night of the Living Dead first brought zombies to the silver screen in 1968. The world was unprepared for the film’s flesh starved ghouls, which resulted in a groundbreaking and commercial success. It remains one of the most influential and revered horror films of all time and now sits in the Library of Congress and the Museum of Modern Art for its cultural significance. Written by John A. Russo and directed by George A. Romero, Night of the Living Dead created the foundation for the five Return of the Living Dead films that gave us TARMAN and his famous catch phrase “More Brains!”, popularizing brain eating zombies and defining the modern dark comedy-horror genre in the process. Romero’s Trilogy of the Dead series also owes its roots to the classic. In addition, Night of the Living Dead is not only credited with spawning a generation of zombie films, but all modern horror films.”

“That history and Night of the Living Dead’s place on the Mt. Rushmore of horror films is known by most horror fans and people all over the world. But, unknown to most is that in the 1970’s, the original writers and producers of Night of the Living Dead penned a sequel to their masterpiece. A sequel that inexplicably has gone unproduced for over forty years – until now. Living Dead Media has brushed away the dirt from this amazing follow up to a classic and brought together a great team to produce the new film.”

The plan is to release Night of the Living Dead Part II in 2019.

Much of the sequel’s details are being closely guarded for now, but we expect more soon. In the meantime, be sure to bookmark official website NightoftheLivingDead.com.
