The Night of the Living Dead is set to be continued

Part II is shuffling into view next year.

If you're a zombie fan, you probably already know that if it wasn't for the original vision of the father of the genre, the late, great George Romero, there would never have been titles such as The Walking Dead or even The Last of Us. This year, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the master's classic work.

Armed with that context, Bloody Disquting reports that screenwriters of the original actually wrote a direct sequel after its release. Now, half a century later, Living Dead Media wants to celebrate this milestone by raising the series from the dead. Apparently, the new film - Night of the Living Dead Part II - is expected to premiere in 2019 and will be a direct continuation of the 1968 original. Consider us intrigued.
