I'm not entirely convinced of the need for a prequel to 1968's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, but it's happening:

Looking back, films started at a certain juncture in a timeline for a reason. Surely if the early days of the zombie outbreak were compelling, that'd have been the story George A. Romero began with.
This is what confuses me about some prequels. If the stories they are telling were compelling, why weren't they told to begin with?
I never needed or wanted an Inspector Clouseau prequel. I never had a particular yearning to know the events prior to ALIEN. Some prequels can be compelling, but NOTLD is what it is, and I am not sure what can be said about the zombie plague prior to the events of that film.
EDIT: Oxford comma added (I'm pedantic and trying to improve my writing!).
