Only if they called it White House of the Dead and Uwe Boll was somehow involved.

Greg Nicotero has stated in interviews that the makeup job they did on Pegg was Bub's face, and explicitly there because Pegg is a huge Bub fan. So, it's not the character of Bub, just his likeness (which is why my original post said "Sort of"). The only recurring character in any of the Romero zombie movies is Savini's biker AFAIK.

Chill, we all love the zombies here.

I did not know that. Thanks for the information. Still don't see how having similar makeup on a different actor in a different role is sort of like bringing back Bub. Not upset about it though. Sorry if you got that out of my post.

We got big open cityscapes with lush skyscrapers, big populations of humans, giant war machine vehicles... I missed the claustrophobic small scale survivalist feel of the previous three. Don't get me wrong, I like LotD, but I can't help but wonder if it actually would've been better if scaled back/stripped down a bit.
I agree, also less CGI please.
How about bringing back Tom Savini for the effects.

Agreed. The single-minded, remorseless killing machine aspect to the creatures was the cornerstone of their terror. Now they are more like disgruntled homeless people.

Transients of the Dead? Salvation Army of the Dead?

That was the idea. He's said for years that he wanted to have the Dead be like homeless people and regular people ignore the problem.

Also, there was nothing wrong with the little CGI they used in the film.

Watched this last night and I thought it made most other recent horror movies seem lame in comparision. I'm all for Romero putting more Dead movies out for as long as he can keep the studio money coming!

I haven't gotten a second viewing yet, but I suspect I would like it as much as when I saw it in theatres: not very much. The unrated footage must be nice and add a little to film, but overall, it just wasn't a very good film.
