George A. Romero, considered the godfather of the zombie subgenre, is taking his undead franchise on the road, as we first reported back in May. Included in this summer’s Frontières co-production market, which returns to the Fantasia International Film Festival from July 20-23 in Montreal, is a brand new Romero zombie film that is seeking financing. Similar to how Don Coscarelli passed on the directing duties with the fifth Phantasm, Romero will not be helming George A. Romero Presents: Road of the Dead, this time passing the baton to Matt Birman.
Road of the Dead takes place six years after 2005’s post-apocalyptic Land of the Dead and is set on an island where zombie prisoners race cars in a modern-day Coliseum for the entertainment of wealthy humans. “In the darkest days of the zombie apocalypse, the last safe place on earth is anything but, as a mad despot uses the spectacle of high octane carnage to keep control of his populous.” Birman describes the project as Road Warrior meets Rollerball at a Nascar race, with significant inspiration from Ben-Hur.

England is Mine is the name of a new, unauthorized biopic on Morrissey. The film was directed by Mark Gill and stars Jack Lowden as The Smiths singer. Jessica Brown Findlay -- who you may known as Lady Sybil Cora Branson in the hit British period drama Downton Abbey -- also has a starring role as Linder Sterling, a Liverpudlian visual artist and close friend to Morrissey.
The film focuses on Morrissey's early years before he experience international fame as the frontman of The Smiths and later as a solo artist. This is certainly reflected in a newly revealed teaser clip, which sees a young Steven Patrick Morrissey navigate his way through the fledgling Manchester music scene in 1970s.
