Can’t get enough zombies? Of course not. So this should make you happy: “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” co-creator Kevin Eastman and “El Mariachi” star Carlos Gallardo are teaming up to bring you … the “Zombie Apocalypse”!!!! Ahem. So what’s better than a new zombie movie? How about a new zombie movie trilogy? Video games? Comic books? That’s what the makers of “Zombie Apocalypse” are envisioning. A tad ambitious, you say? Probably.
In Zombie Apocalypse, when zombies start to take control of the world they turn into malevolent versions of their former selves with any previous physical combat skills enhanced to almost superhuman level, making eradication near impossible. Into this seething hell a squad of eight Special Forces soldiers are assigned a suicide mission to rescue a scientist from a city ruled by the undead.
The film will be written and directed by Chee Keong Cheung, and produced by Kevin Eastman. Carlos Gallardo, most famous for playing the Mariachi in Robert Rodriguez’s ultra low-budget actioner “El Mariachi”, will co-produce and star in the film.
Look for the movie, comic books, and possible game sometime in 2012.
