"There was a sequence in "Survival of the Dead" where there's a zombie that's behind the wheel of a auto, and Matt proposed an idea: "How about zombies that know how to drive!?'" Romero told IndieWire about the movie he compared to "'Fast and the Furious" with zombies at the wheel".
Romero, an innovator in the horror movie genre who essentially introduced us to zombies as we know them, has died at the age of 77. He formed Image Ten Productions in the late 1960s and produced and directed the cult classic "Night of the Living Dead" for $114,000 in 1968. Romero also terrified audiences with 1973's The Crazies, 1978's Martin, 1982's Creepshow, 1988's Monkey Shines, 1993's The Dark Half, and 2000's Bruiser.
His longtime producer Peter Grunwald told LA Times that he passed away while listening to the score from 1952 film The Quiet Man, said to be one of his favourite films. If a zombie bites a human, the person dies and returns as a zombie.
Friends and colleagues mourned his death on Twitter.

RIP George A. Romero, you will be missed. Numerous "rules" of the zombie genre, such as destroying the brain of a zombie in order to stop it, originated from Romero's films.
Romero will always be remembered for helping to launch the zombie genre with series such as "The Walking Dead" paying homage to him and his huge contribution to the genre for more than 40 years.
"Night of the Living Dead" featured black actor Duane Jones in the lead, which was unusual at a time when race relations were testing the country. "I feel this is my way of being able to express myself". He graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, then began shooting shorts and commercials, including a segment of "Mr. Rogers Neighborhood". His father was a Cuban national, while his mother was Lithuanian-American.
