News Day of the Dead: Bloodline Star Says Romero Was Very Involved With the Film at the Beginning! Published 10 months ago on January 2, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet In a recent interview conducted with Day of the Dead: Bloodline star Sophie Skelton, we found out some very interesting information regarding George A. Romero’s involvement in the reimagining of director Hèctor Hernández Vicens’ 1985 cult classic zombie flick. When asked if Romero had been involved at all, Skelton revealed. “He wasn’t on set or anything, but he was very involved in the beginning, I think.” Skelton told SyFy. “It’s his baby, I suppose. It was one of his originals, one of his first [zombie films]. Because it is the last one to come out before he died, it’s nice to be able to do it and hopefully make him proud. I know he wanted to make another zombie film before he died, but he was saying that things like The Walking Dead prohibited that. Which is quite sad, really. The genre that he gave birth to has been taken over and starts hindering things. Since this will be the first one to come out since his death, hopefully it will make him proud.” We would love to know what he was actually involved with, if anything. The film has been given an R-rating by the MPAA for “bloody violence and gore, language and brief sexuality/nudity.” Synopsis: “The post-apocalyptic tale follows a former medical student tormented by a dark figure from her past, who happens to be a half-human, half-zombie hell-bent on destroying her.” The film also stars Johnathon Schaech, Marcus Vanco, Jeff Gum (Exeter, The Vault), Lorina Kamburova (Nightworld, Leatherface, Death Race 4), Nick Loeb, Rachel O’Meara, Debbie Sherman, Luke Cousins, Nathan Cooper, and Cristina Serafini. Saban Films will bring Day of the Dead: Bloodline to theaters, VOD, and Digital HD on January 5, 2018.
