Romero (Night of the Living Dead) announced today that he has launched his campaign on Indiegogo, for Origins, the genesis story of the first Romero zombie in his father’s iconic masterpiece Night of the Living Dead, with a goal of $150,000 for pre-production costs.

Synopsis: Set in the turbulent late sixties, the film tells the story of a brilliant scientist – Dr. Alan Cartwright – who strikes a deal with the military that will give him all the resources he needs to finalize his work in exchange for what he later learns is a price all mankind will have to pay.

“I feel carrying on my dad’s legacy is something that I not only want to do, but it’s something I HAVE to do,” says Cameron Romero. “because I, like all my dad’s fans, was raised on his creation.” Producer Darrin Reed (“Lila and Eve”) said “The origin story deserves to be told by someone who passionately loves and has a unique insight into the original movie and nobody has that more than George’s own son.”

The goal for the initial campaign is $150,000 which will cover pre-production costs. The campaign will run for 30 days is has begun. You can check out the details and contribute HERE
