Cast Announced for New George Romero Zombie Film   

October 3, 2008 George Romero is already filming his zombie movie follow up to "Diary of the Dead," although it isn't technically a sequel to that film.

From today's Variety:

Director George Romero is beginning production on an untitled thriller. Once again, the antagonists are flesh-eating zombies.Romero first mined zombies with "Night of the Living Dead" and has been cannibalizing the genre since, most recently with "Diary of the Dead."
Romero wrote the new film and began shooting this week in Ontario.

Plot involves inhabitants of an isolated island off the North American coast who find their relatives rising from the dead to eat their kin. The leaders of the island feud over whether or not to kill their reanimated relatives or preserve them in hopes of finding a cure.

Cast includes Alan Van Sprang, Kenneth Welsh, Kathleen Munroe, Devon Bostick, Richard Fitzpatrick, Stefano Colacitti and Athena Karkanis.

Sounds a tad like Lucio Fulci's island flesh-eater movie "Zombie" doesn't it? Maybe Romero should throw in some basic cannibals to make the film even more interesting.
