Brad Anderson will direct George A. Romero’s Twilight of the Dead

Brad Anderson (The Machinist, The Call, Session 9) will be behind the camera to direct Twilight of the Dead. The project was mentioned back in 2021, but it had been quiet until now.

The George A. Romero estate is teaming up with Roundtable Entertainment on the “seventh and final installment” of the Living Dead franchise after Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead, and Survival of the Dead.

Romero had written a treatment for the movie before he passed in 2017 and regarded Twilight Of The Dead as the conclusion to his undead saga.

Roundtable Entertainment’s Head of Film and Scripted Content John Baldecchi said, “Brad is the ideal filmmaker to bring this project to life. Both Brad and George began their careers in the independent film scene and have directed seminal movies in the genre space and beyond. Brad has had tremendous success both commercially and critically, and Roundtable is thrilled to have him on board to direct. Twilight of the Dead is the seventh and final chapter of the Dead series and we think Brad is the perfect storyteller to bring this cinematic tale about the human condition to life.”

He had this to say about the project.

George Romero’s 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead may have been the first real horror movie I ever saw and its shock value, its keen social relevance, and even the means by which it was made were all hugely inspirational to me. George’s ‘indie spirit,’ his do-it-yourself approach to filmmaking — outside of the main industry; on a shoestring budget; collaborating with family and friends — is exactly how I made my first film, and to some extent still make films now. Night of the Living Dead, and many of those that followed, wove together straight up horror with pointed social commentary.

“This unexpected combination is what elevated George’s films, and for me it is exactly what is most exciting about Twilight of the Dead. This too is a zombie movie in which limbs fly and heads roll, but one that is also about social transformation, one that asks the question: What is it to be human? It is also a horror movie with ‘heart’ and, dare I say, hope. As a filmmaker who relishes combining and reinventing genres, the chance to bring to life (so to speak!) this last installment in George Romero’s zombie franchise is a true honor and a privilege.

I am always happy to see a zombie movie, but how do you feel about Rmero’s treatment becoming a final film in the series?
