Out promoting his DVD release of Land of the Dead, Bloody Disgusting caught up with George Romero to talk about a few things, including sequel(s) to Land of the Dead and his Stephen King adaptation. Here's a sample:
Question: Will there be a sequel to your current film, "Land of the Dead"?
Romero: If I live, I hope so. I'd like to wait until something else happens in the world to generate a new idea but with things the way they are now, it could be a dirty bomb and...that's all folks. But yes, my plan is for "Land of the Dead" to be the 4th of six films.
Question: I heard a rumor that the next film might be titled "World of the Dead". Any credence to that rumor?
Romero: That has nothing to do with me, never heard of it. But if you know who IS doing such a film, have him give me a call.
Question: I have heard that you may be adapting one of Stephen King's novels. What's the truth behind that rumor?
Romero: Steve and I go way back and he's a great guy and I wanted to do "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon", which is a wonderful story. I've actually already written the adaptation and wanted Dakota Fanning for the lead role. But Hollywood thought the story was "too soft", especially with my name attached to it so it's on hold for now. But we came VERY close to doing it! Perhaps one day soon.
