Romero’s Sanibel Films, Origin Story, Vertigo, and Westbrook Studios have teamed for another remake of Night of the Living Dead—a venture all involved “hope will create a new franchise.” Though the new film’s logline is being kept under wraps, Nikyatu Jusu is attached to direct the project from a script by LaToya Morgan.

There’s no locked guarantees in anything, correct? In life. But there’s a high confidence and discussions, but we don’t have that official word. But I’m feeling good, and I’m feeling the book [Waxing On: The Karate Kid and Me] is not going to hurt our chances either.
