George Romero’s Wife Reveals Dozens Of Scripts The Filmmaker Left Behind


Legendary director George Romero may be gone, but his work still has a chance to continue on according to his wife. Suzanne Desrocher-Romero told Comicbook the director left behind a ton of scripts, some of which are being re-worked right now:

George was a prolific writer. He loved to write, and we have 40, 50 scripts that he's written, and a lot of it is very good. He had a lot to say, and he still does, because I'm gonna make sure that he does. It's my mission.

Desrocher-Romero said that’s not all she has to share with the world, however, as she also revealed there’s a film the director did in the early 70s she’d like to share as well:

We have a film that he shot in 1973 that most people haven't seen. A handful of people have seen this film. We're gonna restore it, and we're gonna show it to Romero cinephiles. It's a scary movie, but it's not a horror movie, and it's about ageism. Anyway, he has a cameo in it, and it'll be fun. And we'll show the movie, or get it distributed. It'll be a project that the foundation's gonna do. I think it's the first project we're gonna do actually.

That’s some exciting news for horror fans, and I’m curious to see what all Romero wrote that he never got around to bringing to the big screen. Are you excited to find out as well, or do you think there’s a reason all these scripts haven’t seen the light of day?
