The zombie apocalypse continues [ Film & TV -> Update ]

More info on Film & TV: Diary of the Dead | More info on Person: George Romero

We don't cover many movies here at DaC, but screw it. George Romero is great. And it's just been announced that he's working on the 5th film in the zombie-apocalypse '... of the dead' series, which started in the 1960s with Night of the Living Dead. This one's called, somewhat lamely, Diary of the Dead:

The dead are rising again.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that horror maven George A. Romero has signed on to write and direct "George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead," the latest sequel to his 1968 cult classic "Night of the Living Dead."

With a story mixing elements of "The Blair Witch Project" and the long-running "Dead" series, the film will follow a group of college students shooting a horror movie in the woods who stumble upon a real zombie uprising. When the onslaught begins, they seize the moment as any good film students would, capturing the undead in a "cinema verite" style that causes more than the usual production headaches.

After going more than two decades without making an independently financed zombie film, Romero told his production partner Peter Grunwald he was frustrated working within the system. "I was trying to convince Peter we could just run off and do it ourselves," he said.

It's not clear on whether this is a direct sequel or something of a spin off, but I don't care that much: nobody does zombies munching on brains like George Romero.
