It looks like George A. Romero has found a buyer for his latest zombie opus Diary of the Dead. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Weinstein Company has picked up North American and Mexican rights with a commitment for theatrical distribution.

Diary of the Dead returns to the beginning of the living dead outbreak - telling the story of a group of student filmmakers who document their deadly encounters with ravenous flesh-eaters just as the world is first plunged into chaos.

The film does not have a set release date at this time.
