Night Of The Living Dead prequel coming from George Romero's son?!

Night of the Living Dead Origins Cameron Romero George Romero

Nothing like keeping up the family business.

Variety reports that Cameron Romero, son of legendary horror filmmaker George A. Romero, is currently crowd-funding a prequel to his dad's immortal NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. The younger Romero, who has helmed several films of his own including STAUNTON HILL, is seeking a budget of $150,000 on IndieGogo, a figure he's almost certain to receive.

George will produce NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: ORIGINS, via his Romero Pictures banner, Darrin Reed will also produce.

The origin story deserves to be told by someone who passionately loves and has a unique insight into the original movie and nobody has that more than George’s own son,” Reed said.

Cameron's take: “I feel carrying on my dad’s legacy is something that I not only want to do, but it’s something I HAVE to do because I, like all my dad’s fans, was raised on his creation."

“Origins” will be set in the late sixties 1960s and focus on a brilliant scientist who strikes a deal with the military that will give him all the resources he needs to finalize his work in exchange for what he later learns is a price all mankind will have to pay.
