'Survival of the Dead' Release Plans

Bloody-Disgusting is reporting that release plans have been set for George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead
Magnet Releasing has secured their distribution plans for George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead, his latest zombie flick . . . . Magnet has locked down a VOD, Amazon and Xbox Live premiere for April 30, with plans to open in limited theaters on May 28th.
The Video-On-Demand debut sounds like an interesting route to take -- I just hope Romero and his people are getting more bang for their buck from the distributor's decision to pursue a digital distribution strategy rather than a theatrical one.
