George Romero Talks About ‘Diary’

george-romero.gifGeorge A. Romero has been hard at work on his new movie Diary of the Dead. If you couldn’t tell by the title, it’s a new zombie of the same vein as some of his previous works, Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead among others. The movie, which follows a group of filmmakers as they encounter real zombies while they’re trying to film their own horror film, has pretty much been kept under wraps with little detail being shared. Well now Romero has posted a little snippet about the movie over at film’s myspace blog:

Hi, guys,

Lemme tell ya about Diary of the Dead. I love it. It’s the first film since my original Night of the Living Dead that I can say is completely my own.

I’ve been trying to work under-the-radar, with no hype or press, but lately I’ve started hearing all kinds of sh*t about “What’s goin’ on with Romero?” “What’s with his new film?”Gimme a break over here! I’m up in Toronto workin’ my ass off, making Diary the best it can be. Truth is, I’m having a blast. I’ve gone home to the kind of filmmaking that I used to do, back in the day.

Diary is a hundred percent independent, made with my partner, Peter Grunwald, and our new friends at Artfire. I haven’t had this much freedom since 1968. The cast, of what film critics will probably call “unknowns” (they won’t be for long) is, in my opinion, f***in’ great.

This one comes from my heart. It’s not a sequel or a remake. It’s a whole new beginning for the dead.

Thanks to all of you who are out there waiting and wondering. You guys, the fans, have always kept me going. Now Diary’s keeping me going, night, dawn, and day.

I love this movie. I hope you will, too. I’ll be back here from time to time to keep you posted. Stay tuned.

Stay scared.
George A. Romero

Sounds to me like it could be pretty good, especially since Romero wrote and directed this one.  I mean the man knows how to do zombie movies, so how could it fail?
