Zombie king George Romero spoke to Twitch from The Lund IFFF and divulged some exciting news for zombie and comic fans.
“I am also writing a comic for Marvel. I'm writing it now, but it's plot is a secret,” he told Twitch.
When pushed, the director had a few more details.
“Well I can tell you it won't involve any of their on-going characters, there will be no superheroes. But it will involve zombies!” he said.
Pretty cool. He is also adapting a novel into a screenplay and working on an original story.
“I am in fact adapting a novel right now, and it is a zombie novel, but it's not my kind of zombies. It's a novel called The Zombie Autopsies written by a Harvard medical doctor. It's a wonderful book and I'm having a wonderful time adapting it into a screenplay. I am also working on an original story, which I guess if I had to categorize it, I would say it's a psychological thriller. it's....mmm, Psycho like? But it's not really. I don't know how to tell you anything more without giving it away. But in reality I don't actually know for sure what the next one is going to be. It often comes up out of the blue. You just don't know which one the money is going to come through for,” he said.
Romero hasn’t penned an original feature-length film since 2009’s Survival of the Dead.
