Weinstein's Buy Romero's Latest Rehash

George Romero just cant get zombies out of his head.

In 1968, he directed the low-budget "Night of the Living Dead" which became a cult classic in horror movies and launched Romero from nobody status to "Horror Master." Since then, he has managed to cash in on that fame by cranking out a franchise around the Living Dead genre.

And now late last night in Toronto, the Weinsteins have decided to infuse a little more life into the franchise and purchased the North American and Mexican distribution rights for Romero's latest work "Diary of the Living Dead" for aproximately $2 - 2.5 Million.

Horror Journalist Chris Alexander interviewed Romero on the set for Fangoria TV. Here is the clip, thanks to someone who stole it and dumped it to YouTube:
