New Romero Zombie Film Wraps   

November 2, 2008 'Island of the Dead,' the new zombie film from George Romero, wrapped principal photography on Halloween in Canada yesterday.

This is not apparently a sequel to "Diary of the Dead" -- just another zombie movie. According to the recently upated IMDB profile of the film, the story goes something like this: "On an island off the coast of North America, local residents simultaneously fight a zombie epidemic while hoping for a cure to return their un-dead relatives back to their human state."

The film stars Alan Van SPrang, Joris Jarsky, Athena Karkanis, Kenneth Welsh, Devon Bostick and Kathleen Munroe. Look for it in 2009.
