Start the geek freak outs now.
Zombie Research is reporting (with a hat tip to Bleeding Cool for hunting this down) that George A. Romero is currently working on adapting the Steven Schlozman novel, The Zombie Autopsies, with the author at his side.
The film will follow the story of scientist Dr. Stanley Blum, a man infected by, but also attempting to cure, a zombie virus Itâ€™s told through his journal entries, and is apparently quite elaborate in its descriptions of things.
Personally, while I havenâ€™t found much of Romeroâ€™s recent work all that compelling, I do think that this could be a really interesting project for him to take on, particularly if it is as introspective as it appears to be. Heâ€™s always been one to broaden his stories, so the singular focus could be refreshing when put into his hands. He will forever by synonymous with the genre, but this fresh take on it could be just what his career has needed for years now.
