I attached the poster the guy is talking about in the article. Um, wow, where to begin with my thoughts on this. I think George Romero is a god when it comes to writing horror for the big screen. He's never let me down in the past, and since Dead Reckoning isn't happening at the moment, I suppose I'll have to latch onto this rumor. What's this about Rob Zombie looking to direct an part for this movie? Bring it on, I loved how he did House of 1000 Corpses. One of my all time favorite writer/directors with Rob Zombie, I love if it did happen.There's got to be some legitimacy to this news because you don't just slap George Romero's name above the title of a project you're developing and get away with it.
Wandering the Fango con this weekend, your devoted Rotten one spotted this poster (on the right). At first I passed it off as some bull**** poster that someone was selling. Then I noticed the MIFED 2003 tag at the bottom. So I approached this dude, whose name cannot be found anywhere on the IMDB, to get the skinny on what the poster was about - since it was at his table. It seems this guy, named Jim Dubbleson (or Duddleson), has George Romero attached to produce "Sharing Joy & Sorrow" a horror anthology that merges and mixes its stories up like "Pulp Fiction" and "Go" did. Jim told us Rob Zombie has the script and is eyeing to direct an installment. We'll keep an eye out for more news on this.
We were also informed that a "Day of the Dead" television series is being shopped around to various production companies as well as a "Creepshow" animated series of sorts. The latter was merely alluded to. We couldn't get any more info out of the guy on that. But a "Day of the Dead" series? Huh? As we like to say about rumors and news like this, take it with a grain of salt. Just remember, at one time an "Escape from New York" television series was announced with Howard Chaykin involved. Did that ever see the light of day? Nope.
As for the Dead series, those rumors have been flying around forever. I can see how that would go down. People would be wanting to see zombies eat brains or whatever. Yeah, that's not a Romero thing. You want brain munching and no real plot, go watch Fulci's Zombie.
