And then there's Road Of The Dead, which sounds so goddamn good that we're just going to let Romero describe it:
It's set in a sanctuary city where this fat cat runs a haven for rich folks, and one of the things that he does is stage drag races to entertain them. There's a scientist there doing genetic experiments ... and he has discovered that with a little tampering, they can recall certain memory skills that enable them to drive in these races. So it's a demolition derby with zombies at the wheels, and of course the shit hits the fan. It's really The Fast and the Furious with zombies.
The Fast And The Furious with zombies.
THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS WITH ZOMBIES.
We don't have a font size capable of emphasizing that description as much as we'd like. It's just ... perfect.
Road Of The Dead is currently "sputtering" but alive, according to Desrocher-Romero, but if someone gets the headshot and kills this project for good, between that and the fact that Capcom rejected his script for Resident Evil, we're going to consider Hollywood to also be dead for good.
