NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD Comes Back To Life Again With A Prequel

Jim here. Last we heard from the NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD public domain franchise was the modern colorization and 2D to 3D conversion by PassmoreLab, which I can't wait to see. The world premiere will be Saturday, October 3 at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

Now comes word via Heat Vision that Zebediah de Soto is directing a prequel to the series entitled NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: ORIGINS with Simon West producing.

But what is more exciting to me is a new piece of technology that De Soto (and Gus Malliarodaki) have invented known as "the beast". This equipment "allows filmmakers the ability to direct CG performances the same way they would direct real live actors. The aim of the process is to make tennis balls on a stick representing real people or monsters a thing of the past by allowing actors interact with CG elements as if they are tangible."

If this technology is as good as it sounds - it's a home run. More on the project when I get it.
