Exclusive: Diary 2 to Begin Shooting in September

George A. Romero returns! (click to see it bigger!)You know it’s a good day to be a zombie fan when you learn from some well placed friends that your favorite walking dead director is getting set to start production on yet another entry into his classic series! Ah yes, kids, Diary of the Dead 2 is all but on its way!

News rumbling began after Romero, who was scheduled to appear at this weekend’s Motor City Nightmares show in Novi, Michigan, had to cancel his appearance, citing “work related issues” as the reason for his absence.

A couple of phone calls later, Dread Central learned that George has to attend several meetings about Diary 2 which have the project significantly hitting the fast track. So significantly that we got the word it’s 99.9% a go for the film to start production this September.

Oh happy day! Attendees of the Motor City Nightmares show, though disappointed, have gotten one hell of a substitute for Romero that comes in the form of Tobe Hooper! Tobe (who rarely makes it out for shows) has landed in Michigan and will be there to greet fans the entire weekend. If you’re in the area, this is a show you just don’t want to miss.

Keep it here for more on the Diary of the Dead sequel as we get it.

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

    That said, if he shoots it in Toronto, I’m gonna have to try to become a zombie extra…or a PA or something…

    Also? Diary sux. True fact!

    Diary was decent, the least in the series, but a heck of a lot better than dead films made by nearly anybody else. I’m glad that George is doing this (Although I can see the man making dead movies ’til the day he’s become one of them, seeing as how he’s pushin’ seventy).

    Godspeed George! Make it gory!!!

    I loved Diary. The “social commentary” was a LOT more pronounced in it than in the others…it practically dripped from the screen. That, and I’m not one to see where the commentary was in the other Dead movies…

    Fuck yea, George!
