According to Variety, George A. Romero's Empire of the Dead is set to be adapted for TV. The announcement came Thursday at the Cannes film festival. Empire of the Dead is a 15 issues series from Marvel Comics that brings vampires into the world of Romero's zombie apocalypse.

Though Empire of the Dead has yet to find a network home, it is being backed by Demarest, the same company that backed Kevin Smith's Tusk. No cast or release date has been announced. Empire of the Dead will be written and produced by Romero and his longtime writing partner Peter Grunwald.
