Now that George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead is just a few short weeks away from premiering at film festivals in Venice, Toronto, and Austin, we expect more and more info will begin coming in, and today there’s both a behind-the-scenes sneak peek courtesy of MySpace and a new still from Fangoria.
Some of you have been asking about the title of my new film. I called it “Survival of the Dead” because it’s about a group of people who escape to a place they think is safe – an island where they hope to survive the war between the living and the dead.
That’s how the story begins. By the end, something happens that makes the word “survival” take on a whole new meaning. I’m not going to give it away now.

Lastly, if you’re on Twitter, you’ll want to follow @OfficialRomero to stay up-to-date on all things Dead. Even the filmmakers themselves will chime in about the latest developments in getting the film ready for release. Among the cast and crew who will be posting include actors Alan Van Sprang, Kenneth Welsh, Kathleen Munroe, Devon Bostick, Richard Fitzpatrick and Eric Woolfe; editor Michael Doherty, stunt coordinator Matt Birman, VFX supervisor Colin Davies, SFX makeup creator Francois Dagenais, costume designer Alex Kavanagh, EPK producer Michael Felsher – and George A. Romero himself! Fans will recognize these “official” tweets as they will end with the person’s initials: AVS, KW, KM, DB, RF, EW, MD, MB, CD, FD, AK, MF and of course GAR!
