Night of the Living Dead, now half a century old, had a quasi sequel in Dawn of the Dead. Although that film paid reference to the problem at large, it didn’t reference the events themselves of the original movie.
Now according to Bloody-Disgusting a new direct sequel is being planned.
“Night of the Living Dead’s place on the Mt. Rushmore of horror films is known by most horror fans and people all over the world. But, unknown to most is that in the 1970’s, the original writers and producers of Night of the Living Dead penned a sequel to their masterpiece. A sequel that inexplicably has gone unproduced for over forty years – until now. Living Dead Media has brushed away the dirt from this amazing follow up to a classic and brought together a great team to produce the new film.”
The above is a statement from Living Dead Media, the company which handles the rights to the original. Hopefully it will be handled better than the recent films in this franchise.
