Romero and Paolo Zelati penned the treatment, with the screenplay written by Joe Knetter, Robert Lucas, and Zelati.

“George Romero’s 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead may have been the first real horror movie I ever saw and its shock value, its keen social relevance, and even the means by which it was made were all hugely inspirational to me,” said Anderson. “This too is a zombie movie in which limbs fly and heads roll, but one that is also about social transformation, one that asks the question: What is it to be human? It is also a horror movie with “heart” and, dare I say, hope.”

Twilight of the Dead is produced by Suzanne Romero, John Baldecchi, Ardvella Entertainment’s Stephanie Caleb, Zelati, and Sarah Donnelly, with executive producers Dominic Ianno, Alex Dundas, Jason Resnick, Chris Roe, and Luis Riefkohl. Stephanie Holbrook is casting the film.
