The UK take on the classic 1968 George A. Romero film Night of the Living Dead, known as Night of the Living Dead: Resurrection, has gained even more steam and has found itself sitting pretty with some international distro!

From the Press Release
4Digital Media has acquired the UK distribution rights to Night of the Living Dead: Resurrection. Based on the 1968 horror classic, the story focuses on four generations of a family trapped in a farmhouse in Wales during a zombie apocalypse.

James Plumb directed from a script he co-wrote with producer Andrew Jones. Independent Moving Pictures’ Rob Graham and Manish Patel executive produced. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: RESURRECTION will receive a limited theatrical release in select UK cinemas followed by a DVD and VOD release.

North Bank Entertainment’s Andrew Jones and 4Digital Media’s Tony Taglienti made the deal.

Andrew Jones: “We are delighted to be teaming up with 4Digital Media to bring NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: RESURRECTION to UK audiences. This film is a completely different take on the classic concept so audiences going into this movie expecting a retread of the original film will be surprised by the new twists and turns our story takes. Zombies have penetrated popular culture, and in recent years they have often been used in humorous ways. But we are aiming purely for scares with this film while adding a new level of threat to our main protagonists in order to really ramp up the tension.”

Here in the States Grindstone Entertainment Group has acquired North American distribution rights and will release the film through Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Why do people keep alluding to the girl zombie in the marketing for anything remotely associated with this property ? I realize that was an iconic moment in Romero’s film, but there are other noteworthy ghouls in NOTLD, for fuck’s sake. If they have to keep producing inferior remakes of this flick, at least buck the trend and show some love for the Bill Hinzman zombie for a change.

    That’s one area where I give the Savini-helmed/Romero produced NOTLD 90’s remake major props- the theatrical poster depicted a horde of zombies shuffling toward the farmhouse in the moonlight. None of this “tapping into a single scene from a movie with a gritty magic no one will ever capture quite the same way again,no matter how many emerging artists looking to make a buck their first time out decide to piss on the name” bullshit. Fuck you, public domain parasites!
