Papa Romero Already Back in the Saddle

George Romero

You kids these days. You have no appreciation for what hardships we, the old bastards among you, had to endure. Why, there was a time when we waited twenty goddamn years for a new Romero zombie flick. Then after the Last Great Zombie Year of 1985, we got Land of the Dead in 2005. And then you got Diary of the Dead just last year. Now there’s a sixth Romero zombie flick happening already. As in the thing’s written and George is already shooting. That’s three Romero zombie flicks in five years, if we take it that the untitled sixth film will hit cinemas next year. So in just five years we’ve doubled the amount of Romero zombie films. I hope you kids appreciate this.

Anyway, the film is zombies vs. people on an island. So Island of the Living Dead is as good a pull-it-out-of-my-ass title as any. The cast announced is Alan Van Sprang (Diary), Kenneth Walsh (Exorcism of Emily Rose), Devon Bostick (Land), Richard Fitzpatrick, Stefano Colacitti and Athena Karkanis.

And get offa my lawn!!

    Let’s just hope Island is better than Diary.
