Land of the Dead

Rumour has it Asia Argento is to feature in the latest of George Romero's series of Dead films, Land of the Dead.

He gave a brief synopsis of what the film will be about; it will take place farther along in the future from Day of the Dead, and it is set up as a city living in the now zombie-controlled world. The city will have a giant wall built around it to keep the undead masses out, and the problems and action will occur when the people of the city need to leave to get supplies such as food. The main overlying theme he wanted for this movie would be ignoring the problem, or rather how society ignores the problems around us until we are forced to actually face them.

Because we all watch zombie movies for their social commentary.

Actually, George Romero once said that the zombie movie was the perfect liberal nightmare because you are suddenly faced with the masses and you discover that they smell bad and want to eat you.
