You zombie-lovers out there will be groaning to know that George Romero is developing another zombie film that is yet to be titled, and it's not a direct sequel to Diary of the Dead as was thought.
Movieset talked to producer Nicolas Chartier, who confirmed the movie is not a direct sequel to Diary of the Dead and is not yet titled but will most likely have the word "dead" in there somewhere.
"We're shooting underwater zombies," Chartier said. "They're swimming, grabbing people's legs, pulling them down. It's a lot of fun."
Romero also told schlock around the clock that this next project will include a couple of characters from Diary of the Dead and that the movie is about "tribalism".
"It starts with the blonde who drove away and the national guardsmen who robbed the people. So those are the only characters that return. What it’s about is tribalism. How the internet creates a Hatfields and McCoys situation. It’s on an island, where people have been lured by someone on the net as a safe haven, but really what these guys are trying to do is hold them up at the boat docks. I don’t know if it’s going to be made. The script is in, so we’ll see what happens."
Romero will shoot the film in Toronto.
