Yes, we realize it’s insane he doesn’t already have one.
Back in August, a fundraiser was launched to pay for the Hollywood Walk of Fame star that the late George A. Romero was selected to receive prior to his passing; as silly as it is, these things cost a whole lot of money, and organizer Matt O’Neill hoped that Romero fans would pitch in to cover the ridiculous costs.
Unfortunately, that fundraiser never ended up raising its goal amount. But that’s okay, because we’ve just learned that Romero is getting his star this October!
Via Hollywood Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez on Twitter this afternoon, George Romero will be honored with a posthumous Walk of Fame star on October 25.
On that same night, Prospect House Entertainment, Glendale Arts and Chris Roe Management, along with George A. Romero’s close family and friends, will celebrate Romero’s life and career with The George A. Romero Official Tribute and Memorial.
Beginning at 7pm at The Alex Theatre in Glendale, California, the event will feature a Q&A with celebrity fans and friends, along with a screening of Creepshow.
You can grab your tickets from The Alex Theatre’s website.
