Romero and Paolo Zelati wrote the treatment, with the screenplay written by Joe Knetter, Robert Lucas and Zelati.

“George Romero’s 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead was perhaps the first real horror film I ever saw and its shock value, its great social relevance and even the way it was made were all hugely inspiring to me,” said Anderson. “This is also a zombie film in which limbs fly and heads roll, but one that is also about social transformation, one that asks the question: what is it to be human? It is also a horror film with ‘heart’ and, dare I say, hope.”
