In an article just posted over on Fangoria chatting with KNB effects man and all around cool guy Greg Nicotero, details on one of the thirteen Fear Itself episodes were casually dropped.
The NBC-based, retitled third Masters of Horror season got most of its scripts in before the writers’ strike, Nicotero confirmed, one of which is a story called “New Year’s Day” from 30 Days of Night creator Steve Niles.
The story is a rewrite of Fango scribe Paul Kane’s “Dead Time”, the story of a woman dealing the effects of a hard night of New Year’s Eve partying that seems to have ushered in a zombie apocalypse. Damn, a hangover and the undead? That’s worse than most of my Mondays.
Check out the full article on Fango for Nicotero’s word on possible directorial projects like The Drive In and Mythos, both of which we last mentioned to you guys right here!
