Romero’s son plans Night of the Living Dead prequel

October 16th, 2014 by Marc Comments

While we are big fans of George A Romero’s zombie movies (except maybe the last couple) we’re not sure if they need a prequel movie…

But it seems that’s just what G. Cameron Romero, son of George, is planning with his new crowndfunding project – link at bottom of the page. G. Cameron aims to direct should it prove successful: “I feel carrying on my dad’s legacy is something that I not only want to do, but it’s something I HAVE to do because I, like all my dad’s fans, was raised on his creation,” the younger Romero said.

Origins, as it’s dubbed, would be set in the 60s and will focus on a brilliant scientist who strikes a deal with the military that will give him all the resources he needs to finalize his work in exchange for what he later learns is a price all mankind will have to pay.

“I want to take back the zombie genre in the name of the legacy that my father created almost 50 years ago,” Romero said, “I want to tell the origin story of the modern zombie, in a way that my father wasn’t able to do so back in 1968.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
