The 1968 Pittsburgh-shot movie "Night of the Living Dead" is getting a sequel treatment.

The movie godfathered the flesh-eating zombie genre that has spawned Hollywood in countless movies and series like "The Walking Dead" and its spinoffs. 

The upcoming movie will be directed by Nikyatu Jusu and written by LaToya Morgan. They are keeping the logline under wraps. 

Scribe Morgan was a writer-producer on "The Walking Dead", and the co-creator with JJ Abrams of Duster. She is showrunning that HBO Max crime drama series.

“The original version of Night of the Living Dead is still so resonant to this day. Every era has the zombie that it needs and right now, zombies reflect the ways that humans treat each other and show us who is truly the monster,” said Jusu.

Morgan described the original as one of the great cornerstones of the horror genre. 

"I’m beyond thrilled to be playing in the sandbox that George Romero built and ecstatic to raise the stakes and push the envelope with this exciting new story.”
