Romero to Release Another Zombie Flick

I ask myself all the time, what is my fascination with all things zombie? Who cares! It's mindless (literally!) entertainment, and I love it. Give me 'Dawn of the Dead', 'Resident Evil', '28 Days Later', 'Shaun of the Dead', and now George A. Romero, the original zombie master, has a new release, 'George A. Romero's Diary of the Dead'.

Romero calls the film "a rejigging of the myth," and intends it to be a reboot of his zombie movie franchise. The story follows a group of students who are making an indie horror film. Unfortunately, life imitates art and the group become trapped in a world being consumed by living corpses. The filmmakers then begin to document the real-life horrors occurring around them.

There's no immediate word on when Weinstein might release the flick on the big screen, but stay tuned.

Yippee! The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival this week.
