George A Romero is planning to adapt Steven C. Schlozman's novel, 'The Zombie Autopsies: Secret Notebooks from the Apocalypse'. GEORGE A. ROMERO, most famous for his 'Living Dead' movies, will tackle another writer's vision for the first time.

Talking to i09, Romero revealed that Schlozman was actually a close friend of his: "A friend of mine recently wrote a novel called The Zombie Autopsies, and it's about an isolated group of people doing autopsies on zombies during the zombie apocalypse and trying to figure out what the hell caused this. This is Steve's story, not mine. This guy's a doctor, it's all about being medically correct" Schlozman, who is actually an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, published the novel in March of this year, which will now be adapted by the 'zombie godfather' himself. However, Romero further revealed to i09 that he decided to embark on this project at the expense of turning down new smash-hit Zombie show 'The Walking Dead': "Listen I love FRANK [DARABONT], I know he's done a good job. I love the books, I never watched any of the episodes because. my zombies are sort of my own. I didn't want to be part of it. Producers called and said, "do you want to direct some of these," and I said no. Because I just didn't think it was me."

George A Romero is also set to direct 'Deep Red', a remake of the 1975 mystery horror, due for release next year.
