Romero’s New Zombie Flick NOT A Sequel To DIARY OF THE DEAD?
George A. Romero recently started shooting what was believed to be the sequel to DIARY OF THE DEAD in Toronto, Canada, but now reports are indicating that Romero’s latest "zombie" opus is not DIARY OF THE DEAD 2. Uncle George told SchlockAroundtheClock.com, "the story starts with the blonde who drove away (in DIARY OF THE DEAD) and the national guardsmen who robbed the people. So those are the only characters that return. What it’s about is tribalism. How the Internet creates a Hatfields and McCoys situation. It’s on an island, where people have been lured by someone on the net as a safe haven, but really what these guys are trying to do is hold them up at the boat docks."
Meanwhile producer Nicolas Chartier chatted with movieset.com and told them, "We’re shooting underwater zombies. They’re swimming, grabbing people’s legs, pulling them down. It’s a lot of fun."
