  • Diary of the Dead?

    Found this online today. I certainly had no idea Romero was working on this. From what I've read thus far, it's received rave reviews from those that have seen it, as opposed to his last picture, Land of the Dead, which got nothing but mediocre, bad, and downright awful reviews.

    Anyone else a Romero fan (yes, Overseer I know)?

    Diary of the Dead (also known as George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead) is an independent horror film to be released in 2007. It will be the fifth film in director George A. Romero's Dead series. However, in "an attempt to re-establish a lucrative franchise," the film will, technically and philosophically, be a reboot, "a rejigging of the myth" says Romero. Even though the fourth film was studio-produced through Universal Studios, Diary of the Dead will be produced by Romero's and his producer friend Peter Grunwald's Romero-Grunwald Productions with Artfire Films. The film began its four-week shoot in Toronto on October 19, 2006.

      From what I've read thus far, the plot contains this group of college film-makers out to make a flick as a project. However, that soon changes as the initial outbreak occurs throwing thier little project off as they film what happens during the first few days. This is supposed to be a new series/rehash, that takes place now. I don't know about you, but I though LotD sucked complete ass, for lack of a better phrase. Universal had their hands a bit too deep in the film. The exact same reviewers who thought Land was horrid, think Diary of the Dead is a complete success. If Romero has been given as much freedom with this flick as he has in the past... I think I'll be pleased.

        I haven't been Romero's #1 fan with these films, but this one seems more interesting. As I was with the first one. The rest i didn't like.

          This one was under the radar for most, but I'm really surprised you didn't know about it Marines. I'd been following it since it was announced.
          “To discriminate against a thoroughly upright citizen because he belongs to some particular church, or because, like Abraham Lincoln, he has not avowed his allegiance to any church, is an outrage against that liberty of conscience which is one of the foundations of American life.”

              I didn't even catch the announcement! All I know is that Romero has full freedom... and I like that.
