Our fiends over at Dread Central are reporting that George A. Romero recently had to bail out of an appearance this upcoming weekend at the Motor City Nightmares show in Novi, Michigan. Reason given was "work related issues". Dread did a little snooping though and found out that, "George has to attend several meetings about Diary 2 which have the project significantly hitting the fast track. So significantly that we got the word it’s 99.9% a go for the film to start production this September." While I personally wasn’t a fan of DIARY OF THE DEAD, I love Romero and his body of work. I’d love to see him do something completely different for DIARY OF THE DEAD 2. More when we hear it!
