It’s been 49 years since zombie godfather, George A. Romero gave horror fans the first installment in his ‘Dead‘ franchise! Five films later, and Romero isn’t backing down! Joblo.com has recently shared the poster for the newest film in the franchise, Road Of The Dead!
(Synopsis provided by IMDb.com):
The film is set on an island where Zombie prisoners race cars in an arena for the sole purpose of entertaining the rich.
Road Of The Dead was announced back in May and it’s been stated that Romero was looking for funding for the film. It seems that the film is still little ways away on account of Romero still looking for funding for the film.
Romero will be writing the film with Matt Birman, but Birman will be the one in the director’s chair. This won’t be the first time these two will work together.
