SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD
More Cast, Full Plot for Romero's New DeadThough we all know Romero is prepping another zombie opus up in Canada as we speak, and some casting has been done for it in the last couple of weeks, the rest of the details have been pretty vague. A story in Variety today may clear it up a bit.
First and foremost, the plot involves inhabitants of an isolated island off the North American coast who find their relatives rising from the dead to eat their kin. The leaders of the island feud over whether or not to kill their reanimated relatives or preserve them in hopes of finding a cure.
Next, more cast. The other day Alan Van Sprang was announced, which the trade confirmed along with Kenneth Welsh ("THE FOG", "THE COVENANT"), Kathleen Munroe ("ETERNAL") , Devon Bostick ("GODSEND", "SAW IV"), Richard Fitzpatrick ("JILL RIPS", "BOONDOCK SAINTS"), Stefano Colacitti and Athena Karkanis ("SAW IV").
Shooting on the still-untitled zombie film (they're playing with Island of the Dead, which makes sense) started in Ontario this week. AICN has a scene description and some pretty bad set pics from a local spy, so be sure to check it out for the first of many, many spy pieces I'm sure we'll be hearing about from the new movie.
Synopsis : The dead have risen for less than a week and the world is already like hell. The army has sunk into chaos and some soldiers prefer to desert. They succeed in reaching a small island off North America’s coast, a remote place where they hope to live in peace. But what they thought could be an oasis is only a microcosm of the world at war they just left…
