    It's been 17 years since Day of the Dead came out. I hope George still has it in him to create a great zombie film. I also hope that getting a large budget won't make him lose sight of what makes this trilogy so great. I can't wait!

    Sounds neat! Too bad Romero has to stick with an R-rating, though. Perhaps he'll do an unrated cut for DVD?

    I heard on one of the horror sites I frequent that the theatrical showings will be R, but the DVD will indeed be an unrated cut. Simply wonderful news!
    Romero's zombie classics make up THE (along with the EVIL DEAD Trilogy) best trilogy of all time! I am so very happy that Romero is finally getting a fourth film underway, and I am simply drueling with anticipation!

    In another thread, I had listed a big budget Romero zombie picture as a dream project. Looks like someone was listening.

    As for the R rating, it doesn't bother me. I'm pretty sure that an uncut, unrated version will hit DVD afterwards. I wonder what our resident zombie girl Julie thinks?

    I just hope that only a little CGI is used and that what's used isn't cheesy, ala Resident Evil's "lickter"

    Will Savini be involved, I wonder.

    Gotta agree about the cgi Herm. Hopefully the effects will be done the old fashioned way, with Savini part of the production.

    I'm not sure why the rating is such a problem.
    The fact that the rest of the DEAD films are considered classic has nothing to do with rating. The ability of Romero to create another zombie classic is more troubling than whether or not they'll be an uncut version.

    The rating IS a problem. Think of it this way, Dawn and Day were released as unrated and got little to no advertising. I hope that there is NO CGI used to create the zombies. I heavily doubt George will have anything but make-up. Also, why do I heavily suspect a member of Destiny's Child will get the lead role?

    At the Fangoria Weekend of Horrors, Savini said he would probably be involved, but he didn't know if it would be for fx or acting or both. Here's hoping to both!

    Plus, some people need to read the posts above their's. I stated that an unrated cut will be on DVD. George stated this at the same Weekend of Horrors that I posted above, and I also saw it on one of the horror sites I frequent.

    Quite simply, this is a godsend! I have been waiting for a fourth Romero Dead film for what seems like forever now, and this news excites me like you wouldn't believe!
