George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Deadcelebrates its 50th Anniversary this year. It turns out that there are plans for an official sequel. Romero and John A. Russo wrote a direct sequel to the 1968 film, and Living Dead Media has got hold of the unproduced script. They are planning to release the film next year with the original surviving writers and producers involved.

There is currently no word on cast or directors.

Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead had always made up the rest of the trilogy so I am not quite sure how this sequel will be different. Will we be following the gangs of people who went around shooting the undead?

Will it be in black and white?

This is what Living Dead Media told Bloody Disgusting.

Night of the Living Dead first brought zombies to the silver screen in 1968. The world was unprepared for the film’s flesh starved ghouls, which resulted in a groundbreaking and commercial success. It remains one of the most influential and revered horror films of all time and now sits in the Library of Congress and the Museum of Modern Art for its cultural significance. Written by John A. Russo and directed by George A. Romero, Night of the Living Dead created the foundation for the five Return of the Living Dead films that gave us TARMAN and his famous catchphrase “More Brains!”, popularizing brain-eating zombies and defining the modern dark comedy-horror genre in the process. Romero’s Trilogy of the Dead series also owes its roots to the classic. In addition, Night of the Living Dead is not only credited with spawning a generation of zombie films, but all modern horror films.

That history and Night of the Living Dead’s place on the Mt. Rushmore of horror films is known by most horror fans and people all over the world. But, unknown to most is that in the 1970’s, the original writers and producers of Night of the Living Dead penned a sequel to their masterpiece. A sequel that inexplicably has gone unproduced for over forty years – until now. Living Dead Media has brushed away the dirt from this amazing follow up to a classic and brought together a great team to produce the new film.

What are your thoughts of a Night of the Living Dead sequel? What do you think should be in it?
