Diary of the Dead to be Shot in Ontario

From MoviesOnline:
According to our insider "Diary of the Dead" will be shooting in Ontario, Canada. You will recall that "Land of the Dead" filmed in Toronto, Canada. After "Land of the Dead", which was a major studio movie he made with Universal, the director told his production partner Peter Grunwald that he was frustrated working within the system and wanted to make another independent zombie movie, the first one in 20 years. "I was trying to convince Peter we could just run off and do it ourselves."
THR says the story will follow a group of college students shooting a horror movie in the woods who stumble upon a real zombie uprising. When the onslaught begins, they seize the moment as any good film students would, capturing the undead in a "cinema verite" style that causes more than the usual production headaches.
The movie will be produced by Romero-Grunwald Productions together with Artfire Films. Worldwide sales rights have been picked up by Voltage Pictures and the production is set to begin on October 11th in Toronto. Great news. I just wonder what will happen to the other projects George Romero is involved in, like "From a Buick 8" and "Solitary Isle" and the podcast "Zombisodes". Well, who cares, the master is back directing a Zombiemovie.
