George A. Romero's Son Makes Surprise Announcement
The son of the late George A. Romero, made a surprise announcement on his Facebook page regarding his project 'Origins'. George Cameron Romero has revealed that his project is now titled 'Rise of the Living Dead' and it's a prelude to his dad's 1968 classic 'Night of the Living Dead'!
On his Facebook page he wrote:
"Many of you know that I have been working to tell a story for many years... My dad read the script and called it "genius" (I'm not saying that from pride, it's an actual quote and I have the email to prove it! :)) Many have approached me about making this film and I've said no to many because even though I'm not a "precious" artist, this one is special... this one is mine... this one... is my love letter to my dad... to his work... to the fact that he was once called the most dangerous filmmaker alive... to the fact that society in 1968 wanted to shut him up as much as they wanted to celebrate him..."
We are very excited about this announcement and we look forward to seeing this film in the theaters.
