Now, Romero’s told IGN, "I’m not sure where that came from. I wouldn’t mind continuing the discussion,
but nothing is decided yet. Euphoria seems to have set in even though
the film has only screened about six times."
He continues, "The only way I can see it being worthwhile is if we use
the same characters, which would be the first time I have done that. I
don’t have an idea yet, but if the idea and the money can meet
somewhere in the middle, it’s possible."
But the idea, like the truth, is out there. Apparently, the horror press received a synopsis that goes: "The diary saga continues.
Our heroes, trapped in the mansion where we left them, battle waves of
ravenous zombies, barely escaping alive. In search of a safe place to
settle, they commandeer an abandoned ferry and sail to a deserted
island, only to find that it is already populated by a civilization of
the dead. Told in the same first-person style that distinguished
“George A. Romero’s Diary of the Dead”, the next episode of the saga is
a violent siege set in the middle of nowhere, a desperate struggle for
survival, and peace, between two tribes: the living and the living dead."
guess? It’s about power and money. Maybe Romero wants to make a sequel
and maybe talks about control hit an impasse. He also says he wants to
get away from Hollywood and make something smaller and independent.
Romero’s set to do write The Crazies next year, so he is a busy man. He’ll do a sequel when the time is right.
