Maybe you have heard of George A. Romero? of course you have he is the father of all modern zombie culture with all the major ‘ of the dead ‘ films he created over his lifetime such as Night of the Living Dead, Land of the dead, Day of the Dead and my personal Favourite Dawn of the Dead. He has created many horror movies before his passing in July 2017 after a long battle with Lung Cancer.
Many of us thought that was it we will never see any more films from George Romero but we may have been wrong as his final movie script Twilight of the Dead is getting another shot at life as The Hollywood Reporter has recently posted an article that fills us in on the fact that Suzanne Romero, spouse of George, has secretly been working with screenwriters on the final movie script — and is now seeking meetings with directors.”
The story is set in a decimated world. Life has all but disappeared. But there still may be hope for humanity.
According to the reports, Romero had written Twilight of the Dead with Paolo Zelati..
Suzanne Romero’s granted permission, Zelati continued to develop the script, working with screenwriters Joe Knetter and Robert L. Lucas.
“I gave him my full blessing as long as I could be there every step of the way for it to remain true to George’s vision,” Suzanne Romero said in a statement. “We had a solid treatment and the beginning of the script. I can 100 percent say that George would be incredibly happy to see this continue. He wanted this to be his final stamp on the zombie genre.”
“It is no secret that Diary and Survival were not the way he envisioned the series ending and George knew it very well,” Zelati says. “Twilight of the Dead was his goodbye to the genre he created and wanted to go out with a powerful film.”
I am so excited to get a glimpse into the final vision from Romero and will continue to keep everyone updated on any status updates on the film
