Based on the graphic novel by Stephano Raffaele, story kicks off after an airborne virus has reduced much of the Earth’s population to feral zombies. A recently undead soldier then teams with a female zombie and a human teenager, racing against time to find a cure before being hunted down by the soldier’s former military unit.
According to Rodriguez, the film isn’t set in a world where zombies are monsters.
Okay, now that sounds totally strange. I can see the dialogue now.
Soldier Zombie: Uhhhh… must eat brains…
Human Girl: Stop that!
Female Zombie: Brains!
Human Girl: I said stop! We have to find a cure, and right now, I’m the only one who’s brain isn’t rotting.
Soldier Zombie: Brains?
Human Girl: okay, maybe just a nibble. But remember, I’m not 18 yet.
Female Zombie: Oh, Soldier Zombie, you so cute and cuddly.
Soldier Zombie: Hee Hee
No word on the release date for the film.
Has anyone read this graphic novel? Does it work as a film? This story gives me hope for my Zombie/Kung-fu/Western film I’ve been plotting in my head for the last couple of years.
