Genre Legend George A. Romero is seeking financing for a brand new zombie film which will be included in this summer’s Frontiers market, at the Fantasia Film Festival Running from July 20 -23 in Montreal.
Unfortunately, the “Godfather of the Zombie Genre” won’t be in the director’s chair for the film, titled George A. Romero Presents: Road of the Dead, that honor is reserved for Matt Birman.
Birman was the second unit director for Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead, and Survival of the Dead, which makes him a great candidate. He clearly knows his way around the infected. He co-wrote the script with Romero and will produce alongside Justin Martell and Matt Manjourides.
