Although it may be difficult to believe, it's already been over three years since the passing of George A. Romero. While he left us with a legacy of films that are just as relevant (and sometimes more so) as when they were first released, there are a plethora of intriguing projects that he worked on that didn't see the light of the silver screen.

Thankfully, many of these unmade projects have been preserved by University of Pittsburgh Libraries through their George A. Romero Archival Collection, which will be unveiled in a free virtual event on Tuesday, February 9th at 7:00pm EST.

We have the official press release with additional details below, and to register for the free virtual event, visit:
