George Romero's Survival of the Dead Finally Arriving in the U.S. Next Spring
12.23.09 by Ryan
George Romero has spent a good amount of time this year bringing his latest zombie movie, Survival of the Dead, around to festivals such as the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals while patiently awaiting someone to pick up the U.S. distribution rights. At long last, the wait is over. Variety reports that Magnet Releasing, the company that picked up Let the Right One In last year, has nabbed the rights to Romero's sixth Dead movie.
Romero's latest goes the Western route in a story that depicts two families living on an island with differing opinions on how to treat their refuge's living dead inhabitants. Set for release sometime next spring, Magnet will also release Survival on video-on-demand a month before the movie hits theaters.
