ROMERO NEWS BITS
There's got to be some legitimacy to this news because you don't just slap George Romero's name above the title of a project you're developing and get away with it.
Wandering the Fango con this weekend, Creature Corner spotted this poster (on the right). At first it was passed off as some bullshit poster that someone was selling. Then the MIFED 2003 tag at the bottom was noticed. So they approached this dude, whose name cannot be found anywhere on the IMDB, to get the skinny on what the poster was about - since it was at his table. It seems this guy, named Jim Dubbleson (or Duddleson), has George Romero attached to produce 'Sharing Joy & Sorrow' a horror anthology that merges and mixes its stories up like 'Pulp Fiction' and 'Go' did. Jim told Creature Corner Rob Zombie has the script and is eyeing to direct an installment. We'll keep an eye out for more news on this.
They were also informed that a 'Day of the Dead' television series is being shopped around to various production companies as well as a 'Creepshow' animated series of sorts. The latter was merely alluded to. They couldn't get any more info out of the guy on that. But a 'Day of the Dead' series? Huh? As we like to say about rumors and news like this, take it with a grain of salt. Just remember, at one time an 'Escape from New York' television series was announced with Howard Chaykin involved. Did that ever see the light of day? Nope.
