Survival of the Deadest

BD has details on what will be Georgie "Porgie" A. Romero "Pie"'s sixth "... of the Dead" film... which until now was actually being called ... of the Dead. Turns out that ain't the case.

"George Romero's next film, which has jokingly been called ...of the Dead, has received the official title of Survival of the Dead. In addition, a stack of new images have been posted on the TIFF website as the film will have its WORLD premiere at the "Midnight Madness" section come September.

The latest zombie opus follows a war-weary band of soldiers who are lured to a remote island that promises to be the last paradise on earth, only to discover that even here there is no escape from the appetites of either the living or the dead."

And here are four of the images (click here for a few more):

I know I'm not alone in having been deeply troubled by the total suckitude of the last Dead film... yet my love and admiration for the man himself is like his repeat-protagonists: of the shuffling and undead sort. Diary of the Dead... man, that was nearly a shot between the eyes though. So I pray this one's a knock-out.
