Last week we told you about George Romero‘s new zombie movie (working title “Something of the Dead”) which is currently shooting in Canada. We only had a few details: The film is set on an island three weeks after the zombie outbreaks, and that underwater zombies will be featured. The official announcement in Variety gives us a better look at the plot of the film:
“Plot involves inhabitants of an isolated island off the North American coast who find their relatives rising from the dead to eat their kin. The leaders of the island feud over whether or not to kill their reanimated relatives or preserve them in hopes of finding a cure.”
We also have a full cast listing, which confirms that no a list stars are involved: Alan Van Sprang, Kenneth Welsh, Kathleen Munroe, Devon Bostick, Richard Fitzpatrick, Stefano Colacitti and Athena Karkanis. And AICN has a small batch of set photos, one of which can be seen above.
