George A. Romeros final zombie film is being finished by his widow – NME

George A. Romeros final zombie filmTwilight of the Dead is being finished by his widow Suzanne.

The filmmaker died of lung cancer aged 77 in 2017, and was developing his final film before his death intended to be his final statement on the genre.

Suzanne Romero has now told theHollywood Reporter that she has been meeting with three screenwriters over the last four years and is preparing to meet potential directors.

The films logline reads: The story is set in a decimated world. Life has all but disappeared. But there still may be hope for humanity.

George A. Romero had written the films treatment alongside Paolo Zelati, who then asked Suzanne for her permission to develop the script after Georges death, alongside Joe Knetter and Robert L. Lucas.

I gave him my full blessing as long as I could be there every step of the way for it to remain true to Georges vision, Romero toldThe Hollywood Reporter.

We had a solid treatment and the beginning of the script. I can 100 percent say that George would be incredibly happy to see this continue. He wanted this to be his final stamp on the zombie genre.

Reflecting on George A. Romeros Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead and Survival of the Dead, Zelati said: It is no secret that DiaryandSurvival were not the way he envisioned the series ending, and George knew it very well.

Twilight of the Deadwas his goodbye to the genre he created and wanted to go out with a powerful film.

This is the film he wanted to make. And while someone else will carry the torch as the director, it is very much a George A. Romero film, Suzanne added.

Meanwhile, George A. Romeros lost rollercoaster horrorThe Amusement Park is being released this summer.
