Living Dead director George A Romero dies at 77


The American-born filmmaker George A Romero, who created the genre-defining Living Dead movie franchise, has died at the age of 77, his manager has said.

Romero died in his sleep on Sunday with his wife and daughter at his side, after a “brief but aggressive battle” with lung cancer, Chris Roe said.

Romero co-wrote and directed the film that started the zombie series Night of the Living Dead in 1968.

It led to a number of sequels – and a slew of imitators. Mr Roe said Mr Romero died listening to the score of The Quiet Man, “one of his all-time favourite films”.
