George A. Romero Net Worth $35 Million
Filmmaker George A. Romero may not be one of the most successful directors at the box office, but he has managed to accumulate an impressive net worth of approximately $35 million. His career commenced in Pittsburgh, his adopted home, first in commercials and Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, and then in what remains his most significant film, Night of the Living Dead. That movie, with an frequently imitated but never entirely recaptured mix of art and schlock, has gone on to be considered one of the most powerful horror movies ever made, entirely changing the genre forever.
Romero’s most notable work continues to be his Dead show, which now contains 6 entries. Romero has said that his next horror movie is not going to involve zombies, but it is a safe bet it will involve artful and thought provoking scares like only Romero may bring you. American film director, screenwriter, and editor famous for his macabre and satirical horror movies,George A. Romero has an estimated net worth of $35 million.
American director George A. Romero was making movies from the age of 14 — like most teen movie enthusiasts, with an 8 mm camera. Matriculating into the industrial-film business in Pittsburgh, Romero accrued enough capital to create his first feature-length film in 1968, a graphically gruesome zombie picture entitled Night of the Living Dead.Hardly making back its cost on its initial release, the movie received some welcome, if unfavorable, promotion when Reader’s Digest devoted an article to it. The magazine was appalled in the scenes of cannibalism and similar terrors, going up to now as to insist that the movement be started to get the picture banned. Naturally, this made the film popular than ever, a lot more so than if Reader’s Digest had just ignored it.
