Wow. This is seriously incredible to report. Turns out that the tale of the survivors from George Romero’s Day of the Dead hasn’t ended just yet. Yesterday, an image and short teaser popped up and we almost lost our damned minds. Looks like we are getting a sequel to Day of the Dead titled Night of the Living Dead II.
The teaser shows the trio covered in blood and ready for battle each holding a familiar battle pose. The sequel’s synopsis says that the survivors will have made a home on an island. That makes sense, since they had big dreams about making it to a zombie free island. Plus, they seem to have adapted well in their new surroundings considering their really cool Hawaiian shirt digs.
Lori Cardille, Terry Alexander, and Jarlath Conroy are all back for this one. No strange recasting for this one.
Director, Marcus Slabine is taking over as writer and director on this and is really excited over on social media to have had the honor to direct these three.
There is still no official release date for Night of the Living Dead II, but we will keep our eyes peeled for any further developments.
