Return Of The Living Dead will ‘expand’ upon the original series of films from the 1980s, it has been announced. 

Dan O’Bannon’s mid-80s horror comedy franchise, Return Of The Living Dead is indeed returning, according to reports. Bloody Disgusting has broken the news that the the trailblazing horror comedy is set to be resurrected for new audiences.

Not to be confused with George Romero’s classic Night Of The Living Dead series which originated back in the late 1960s (which is also getting a reboot, as it happens), the Night franchise was always focused sharply on both comedy and horror, making it one of the earliest films to establish the fledgling genre along with other trailblazers such as Sam Raimi’s 1987 classic, Evil Dead II. 

Details are pretty scant at the moment, and there’s no release window scheduled. However, we do know that Kill Her Goats director, Steve Wolsh will be helming the project and the plan is to “expand the existing world created by the original five films”. We’ll bring you more updates on the project as we hear it.
