Horror film vet George A. Romero will soon be getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The director, who immortalized the zombie apocalypse with his 1968 directorial debut “Night of the Living Dead, will have a special unveiling ceremony set to take place sometime in 2017.
Fans of the director have been petitioning and campaigning for Romero to get the accolade for quite some time. Last year at the Texas Frightmare Weekend, his admirers even threw a fundraising event in honor of the 76-year-old helmer.

With most of the great horror movies already remade, we are entering a second wave of reboots that bring back some classics in the genre. Zombie maestro George A. Romero already had his seminal 1985 trilogy ending thriller Day of the Dead remade in 2008, which arrived as a standalone story that wasn't a true follow-up to Zack Snyder's 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake, which in turn really wasn't a sequel to Tom Savini's 1990 Night of the Living Dead remake. Now, we're getting a second Day of the Dead remake, and it doesn't appear to be connected to any of the movies that came before it either. But it will bring back an iconic character from Romero's oeuvre, sort of, and today we have a first look.
Those once dead and buried, are now alive and walking around again on ABC's Once Upon a Time.

Here are 3 Once Upon a Time characters we'd like to see again in the Underworld.
