Romero and zombies go together like peanut butter and jelly. Like Chuck Sheen and rock. Like Fallon and hookers...
As such, we're not passing up an opportunity to tell you about what the godfather of zombie cinema, George A. Romero, is currently up to. The legend spoke with Twitch recently, and confessed to not only adapting a new zombie script, but hatching a new psychological thriller as well writing a new comic for Marvel. All cool shite, give her a peek below!
In an all encompassing interview, when pressed upon projects to come, Romero stated:
"I am in fact adapting a novel right now, and it is a zombie novel, but it's not my kind of zombies. It's a novel called THE ZOMBIE AUTOPSIES written by a Harvard medical doctor. It's a wonderful book and I'm having a wonderful time adapting it into a screenplay. I am also working on an original story, which I guess if I had to categorize it, I would say it's a psychological thriller. it's....mmm, Psycho like? But it's not really. I don't know how to tell you anything more without giving it away. But in reality I don't actually know for sure what the next one is going to be. It often comes up out of the blue. You just don't know which one the money is going to come through for. I am also writing a comic for Marvel. I'm writing it now, but it's plot is a secret."
A Marvel comic from Romero, never mind a film script he's adapting and an entirely new project he's developing? If I can speak for most...F*ck yes! Sure he's 72, but that's only 5 years older than Scorsese and 10 younger than Eastwood. Romero's no less a heavyweight in his respective genre than the other two, isn't he?
Let's keep our fingers crossed we hear more about both new Romero projects soon!
We can surely thank Romero for the ZILF phenomenon
