George Cameron Romero Announces First Official Casting for ‘Rise of the Living Dead’



Night of the Living Dead Zombies

Previously known as Origins, Cameron Romero’s now re-titled Rise of the Living Dead will take place shorty before the horrific events of 1968’s Night of the Living Dead.

If you’re a regular reader of Dark Universe, then you’ll know that we’ve been covering the film for the past few weeks. Guess what? We have more fresh new details for you today.

Recently announced over on the Rise of the Living Dead Facebook page, Romero’s good friend Dimitri from the literal global phenomenon Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike has officially joined the cast.


Origins takes place in the Turmoil of the 1960’s just shortly before “Night of the Living Dead”, and explains how The ‘Original’ Romero Zombie was created. In 1962, Dr. Ryan Cartwright was on the scientific and altruistic path to find a way for humans to sustain life in the event of M.A.D (Mutual Assured Destruction), a huge topic brought on by the Cuban Missile Crisis. Little did he know that over the course of the next several years of his life, he would take a well-funded and military focused journey to the darkest corners of the world… as he creates the ultimate weapon for the government and a curse that will plague mankind for the rest of days.
