With Halloween season in full swing, everyone is checking in with horror heavyweights to see if there’s something that’s on their plate we need to know about quickly. Case in point …
io9 checked in with the legendary George A. Romero to see what he’s got cooking on the film front.
“I would love to do something about the economy,” Romero tells the site. “But zombies are not good mathematicians — I don’t think they’re going to be out selling cheesy mortgages or anything like that. So it’s tough for me to see that. A friend of mine [Dr. Steven Schlozman] recently wrote a novel called The Zombie Autopsies, and it’s about an isolated group of people doing autopsies on zombies during the zombie apocalypse and trying to figure out what the hell caused this. They come upon this discovery.”
“The scientists discover that this is not a naturally occurring virus; they deduce that it must have been created by somebody. And they later discover that it was created by people who were trying to topple the economy. So that’s a unique way in to talk about the economy, but it’s not my story. Steven C. Schlozman is the guy’s name; he’s a Harvard psychologist who has somehow been swept into the zombie craze and is writing zombie novels.”
Look for more on this soon, should there by any movement!
