George apparently is being funded 10 million by Fox to do the fourth dead film entitled "Dead Reckoning". The theatrical version will be rated R while the DVD will be unrated. There hasn't been an official announcement but if you go to www.deadreckoningmovie.com it takes you to 20th Century Fox. That's some good proof. Posted Image

Shit, talk about planning ahead.........hopefully Romero will shoot separate R and unrated versions of the gory stuff instead of just trimming scenes for the theatrical release, since that sort of thing always seems noticeable to me.

While i'm excited beyond words by this news, I must ask what this film will be about. I assume that after the sheer hell that the earth has degraded into in the past three films, that the living survivors will start to win the war with the dead and reclaim the planet right?

I like the title too. I mean they covered all the differnt times of the day it's nice to see an original title like this.

From what I know it's about a fortress city of the last survivors fighting off the living dead in hordes. Knowing this, I'm positive it will kick ass. George knows what he's doing. Posted Image

I heard the same, and I also heard that Dead Reckoning was a monster truck or something like that. Anyways, no matter what the case, just like the three films that preceded it, I gaurantee that this film will be a stellar zombie epic!

Great news! Romero's been known to 'cry wolf' regarding another Dead flick, but if one does hit the screens...I'll be there opening night!

How long has it been since he made any film, and what has he done in between? I'm a little skeptical because I think he may have "old man" disease, where a great film director/writer forgets all the cool stuff he did back when he was younger and loses his touch. What also sucks about this is that no matter how hard I try, I know I'm going to keep comparing everything Romero does to Dawn of the Dead.

Either way, it'll be cool in it's own right.

He directed a commercial for the video game Resident Evil 2 and was in negotiations to direct the Resident Evil movie. I believe at one time he wrote a script but it was scrapped.

Did anyone see Bruiser? I didn't really care for it much, although it was directed well which gives me confidence that this new one will be great.

I'm not sure what's happenning, but all of the sudden 2 of the biggest rumored and hoped for horror sequels are suddenly moving ahead. First Jason vs. Freddy and now this. I thought for sure I'd be long dead before I saw either one of these!

I found Bruiser to be sadly run-of-the mill. Hopefully, the 4th Dead film will be more of a return to form...

Excellent news! If this movie is anywhere nearly as cool as the premise I've heard Romero reveal in interviews, I am there opening weekend. Hell, I'll be there no matter what.

Please, please, PLEASE get Savini on board and give him a budget to allow him to make his Sistine Chapel of zombie gore!

Any chance for an unrated version getting limited theatrical release in the big cities? (FOX: Hint, hint)

Absolutly! You can't have a Romero zombie fest without gore master Savini onboard! That's just crazy talk. Posted Image

Although you know that the MPAA is going to utterly castrate his work if he does do it. Posted Image Which is why it is pretty much mandatory that we get an unrated version on dvd later.

Really though, what has Tom done lately? I havn't seen him credited with any splatter FX since forever.

Sure it was, but having Tom's involvment in the last two installments, i've gotten used to having him do the effects. Besides, whenever I hear Romero's name mentioned, I immediatly associate him and Tom Savini. They make one helluva team. Posted Image

Wonder if Savini will reprise his role as a biker, albeit one with torn limbs and whatnot? Posted Image

Someone asked what Tom Savini has been up to lately, so I thought I'd just provide the IMDB link
