Another thing Romero did with Night of the Living Dead was to help pioneer the act of casting black actors in leading roles in US films that had nothing to do with race.

Entertainment Tonight reports that Romero died in his sleep as a result of lung cancer on Sunday, July 16, 2017.

Romero died Sunday at 77.

Per a statement from Romero's manager Chris Roe given to Variety, Romero died listening to the score to the 1952 film "The Quiet Man".

He says they are "seemingly happy to see outcomes detrimental to the City of London even if Paris is not the beneficiary". The Mail on Sunday headlined the story "Macron's Brexit Saboteurs".

Romero is survived by his wife Suzanne and their two children.

The movie, about a small group of people trapped in a farmhouse besieged by zombies, shocked some critics (including Roger Ebert) with its gore, but its and acclaim grew over the years as film buffs recognized its influence and subversive themes.

He went on to direct other films including the 1971 romantic comedy There's Always Vanilla, the 1978 vampire film Martin, and the 1982 Stephen King adaptation Creepshow.

In a 2016 interview with Indiewire, Romero reflected on the legacy of "Night of the Living Dead".

RIP George A. Romero, you will be missed. Robert Kirkman, the mastermind behind The Walking Dead, claims that seeing the Living Dead trilogy was his biggest guiding light, though Romero has been dismissive of TWD in return, calling it "a soap opera with a zombie occasionally".

Romero made cinematic and horror history when he directed 1968's Night of the Living Dead, which kicked off the zombie sub-genre.

Born in New York City to a Cuban-born father and a Lithuanian American mother, Romero left the city to attend Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Romero embraced the horror and zombie genres throughout his legendary career and he eventually put out three more films in the "dead" franchise including "Land of the Dead", "Diary of the Dead" and "Survival of the Dead".
