George Romero turned down the Walking Dead

George A. Romero, the godfather of zombies, was reportedly asked if he would direct some episodes of the “Walking Dead.” He turned them down saying, “my zombies are my own.” He said he preferred using zombies to make political statements, not just a gore fest with no purpose. His next project is making a film of the novel “Zombie Autopsies,” which is about a group of people trying to find the cause of the zombie apocalypse by performing autopsies on the zombies. He began working on this in 2011, no theater date as yet. When there is one, I’ll let you know. To see the George A. Romero interview, click here.
