quietearth [Celluloid 09.26.08] zombies movie news



Word is that Romero is not doing a sequel to Diary of the Dead but a whole NEW zombie story, and this one is set on an island. It looks like it's still being filmed in Toronto, but beyond that, we have no further details.. UPDATE: Apparently the film will also involve underwater zombies. Can you say Fulci? UPDATE 2: Some plot details have come out: "[it] starts with the blonde who drove away [in Diary of the Dead] and the national guardsmen who robbed the people. So those are the only characters that return. What it's about is tribalism. How the Internet creates a Hatfields and McCoys situation. It's on an island, where people have been lured by someone on the net as a safe haven, but really what these guys are trying to do is hold them up at the boat docks."

Apparently they're "zombie auditioning" here in town for that flick. And I'd totally try out if I had ANY idea how to make an appointment.

The big *bold* headline clearly says,
"Romero's next will not be a sequel to DIARY OF THE DEAD"
Read much?

Wow really I didn't see it. Where?
I was saying that his films have been lacking, meaning Diary of the Dead sucked. It's has been rumored that Diary 2 may be in the works with the currently titled "Solitary Isle".
Understand the concept research much?
Good day sir.

Hey assholes! Diary was a pretty good movie. In fact, Land and Diary were better than 90% of the zombie movies that came out in the past 8 years. The 'Day' remake, House of the dead remakes, Return of the living dead remakes and that awful awful 'Automation Transfusion' movie. Remember those floppers??
Be thankful George is still making movies!

Quietly sceptical yet fondly optimistic. I'm just glad he's not keeled over yet. Make us happy George, please. Also remember the banquet scene that you forgot in Diary, zombies do eat people you know.

Land of the Dead was pretty bad, but it was Diary of the Dead that killed any hope I had of Romero ever making another good zombie movie. If I ever see another of his zombie films it won't be with high (or even medium) expectations. Diary was full of completely unlikable characters making terrible decisions and uttering some of the worst dialogue ever put on screen. Sure Automaton Transfusion was absolute crap, but at least it was entertaining in a "so bad it's good" wish fulfilling way (the TADFF07 audience seemed to get it that way). Romero needs to look at what made his first movies so good and revisit it. The opening 14 minutes of the Dawn remake were also spectacular.
