Twilight Of The Dead, George A. Romero’s concluding chapter of the seminal Living Dead franchise, aims to go into production this year.

The original Night Of The Living Dead was a shot in the arm for the horror genre, a seminal picture that is often cited as one of the greatest horror films ever made.

George A. Romero made five more films in the franchise, the most recent being 2009’s Survival Of The Dead.

Romero passed away in 2017, but he wrote a treatment for the seventh and final film in the franchise, entitled Twilight Of The Dead.

The plot is said to “delve into the dark nature of humanity from the perspective of the last humans on earth who are caught between factions of the undead.”

The script has already been completed. It was written by Joe Knetter, Robert Lucas, and Paolo Zelati, who also worked on the treatment with Romero.

The production team, which includes Romero’s wife and estate manager Suzanne Romero, are in negotiations with a director, and they were in talks with cast before the SAG-AFTRA strike hit. They are applying for an interim agreement.
