Demarest, which backed “A Most Wanted Man” and Kevin Smith’s “Tusk,” is developing a TV adaptation of George A. Romero’s “Empire of the Dead,” a 15-issue graphic novel published by Marvel Comics.

The production-finance company made the announcement Thursday at Cannes.

The series will be written by Romero and longtime partner Peter Grunwald, and executive produced by Romero and Grunwald with Demarest’s Sam Englebardt and William D. Johnson.

Romero’s iconic 1968 film “Night of the Living Dead” conceived the idea of a zombie apocalypse. “Empire of the Dead” mixes in vampires with zombies.

Demarest also announced it has teamed with the Ink Factory to produce and finance the TV adaptation of John le Carré’s “The Night Manager,” starring Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston. The six-part miniseries, directed by Susanne Bier, is currently in production in the U.K., Morocco and Spain, and will air next year on AMC in the U.S. and the BBC in the U.K.

Demarest produced and financed the feature film “A Most Wanted Man,” based on le Carre’s novel and released by Lionsgate last year in one of the last films starring the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Romero really blew it on Land of the Dead

Each one of his movies involved social commentary, but the social commentary was fairly subtle. It started being a little overbearing in Day of the Dead but in Land of the Dead it was so blatantly obvious you couldn't really get lost in the story

the last part of the movie was just awful

Can't always make masterpieces.
