Living Legend John Russo joins the Weekend of the Dead Family for 2020.

John Russo

I am so proud to announce the first ever Romero Zombie/Ghoul to ever be killed on screen, Mr John Russo!!!

This is John’s first ever visit to Weekend of the Dead and his first to the UK since 2005.
John co-wrote Night of the Living Dead 1968 with George Romero and was also involved in the 1990 remake, co producing it with Russ Streiner.
He also wrote the first draft story to Return of the Living Dead which went on to be a classic hit in the mid 80’s.

“John I’m sure will have plenty to say regarding his work with George and his time with Image Ten. I’ve met John personally twice over the past 4 years and I know he will be a fan favourite for the insight into the work of Mr Romero and himself. I can’t wait for John and Russ to take the stage and bring Night of the Living Dead 1968 to life again”. (Marcus Lewis)

“With twenty books published internationally and nineteen feature movies in worldwide distribution, John Russo has been called a “living legend.” He began by co-authoring the screenplay for Night of the Living Dead, which has become recognized as a “horror classic.””
Please give John a very warm WOTD welcome.
