Years 00

Years 00 Romero had a period of inactivity that lasted approximately seven years. During that time he worked writing screenplays for studios such as MGM, Universal and 20th Century Fox, but did not direct any films, a fact which led him to collaborate with a French company in the conduct of Bruiser. The film premiered in 2000 and tells the story of a man who becomes obsessed with a white mask. The film is based on the Columbine High School slaughter, which occurred in 1999. However, the project did not get a good response from the public, which was assumed by Romero himself. Universal Studios was a remake (a new version) of The Dawn of the Dead in 2004, which was directed by Zack Snyder. But Romero was not part of the project. His opinion was positive about this movie: was better than expected. I think it’s a great action movie. The first 15, 20 minutes were great, but gradually lost its raison d’etre.It looks more like a video game. George A. Romero was released the same year Shaun of the Dead, British comedy film makes numerous references to the work of Romero. It was directed by Edgar Wright and starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. The story revolves around a group of people trying to survive the recent appearance of the undead. The film was well received by Romero, who congratulated his creators. Although the idea of making a new movie of the undead had been tested years ago by Romero, production was delayed due to the attacks of 11 September United States in 2001. Finally, on 24 June 2005, the fourth director released a film entitled The Land of the Dead (formerly known as Dead Reckoning). It starred Dennis Hopper, Asia Argento and John Leguizamo, among others.It had a budget of approximately 15 million, the largest in the history of Romero’s films to date. The film featured cameos from Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, director and star of Shaun of the Dead respectively. The response from critics was positive. Romero was not entirely happy with the outcome of the land of the dead, so he decided to direct a new film, this time funded independently. The film was titled Diary of the Dead and was presented on 8 September 2007 at the International Film Festival in Toronto. Its theatrical release in America was on 15 February 2008. The film does not follow the chronological order of the previous four because it is an attempt to start a new franchise of the undead. shows the history of a group of students, while making a horror movie in the woods, discover that the dead are coming alive.Young recorded the time, thinking about the impact that would cause for their project. One of the characteristics of the film is that it was made by subjective, ie the films protagonist what will occur, as in other horror films like Cannibal Holocaust (1980), The Blair Witch Project (1999) and Rec (2007). The film has cameos by Stephen King, Quentin Tarantino, Wes Craven, Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, Tom Savini and Guillermo del Toro, who contributed their voices. Although it was confirmed the production of a sequel to Diary of the Dead Romero denied the rumor, arguing that it would be necessary to use the same actors, which was not done before. Romero’s new film, titled Survival of the Dead, will be presented at the International Festival Toronto Film.The story recounts the struggle of two families in the midst of a post-apocalyptic world where the dead have returned to life, the dispute is based on how both sides view the situation afflicting the planet. The film stars Alan Van Sprang and Kenneth Welsh.
