Lensing Begins on Romero’s Deadtime Stories


“Dust” now filming in Pennsylvania

Cameras are now rolling on George Romero Presents Deadtime Stories in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. As previously reported around the web, this anthology series – with Romero and Christine Forrest on board as executive producers – is driven by writer-producer-actor Jeff Monahan who penned “Deadtime’s three short tales.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

“The first story -“Dust” – is shooting this week at Penn State’s Fayette County campus and in Connellsville. Michael Fischa is the director. The story centers on dust samples brought back to Earth from Mars that can cure cancer and also have “some pretty wacky side effects,” Monahan says.

Monahan will direct the second film, “On Sabbath Hill,” a horror story set in a college campus, which will film next week in Uniontown and at Seton Hill University in Greensburg.

The third and final installment will be wrapped up by February, and Monahan anticipates a spring release for the project.”

Monahan, who previously worked with Romero on The Dark Half and Bruiser – adds “Deadtime Stories” has caught the interview of a number of distributors.
