Looks like after a bit of a bad spell zombies are once again gaining momentum in Tinsel Town, catching up with the vampires who have been ruling the proverbial cinematic roost. As big fans of the living dead, this brings more than just a little smile to our collective faces. If you’ve never heard of James Farr’s Xombie, then, brother, you have been missing out! Though if this following news comes to fruition, we’re fairly certain you won’t be missing out for too much longer!
THR reports that DreamWorks, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci could be walking with a “Xombie” sooner than you think as the studio is in negotiations to buy the property which began life as an internet sensation.
Xombie (DVD review here) is based on a Devil’s Due comic book by James Farr, itself based on his online animated series. Farr’s creation centers on a zombie cop named Dirge who attempts to saves humanity’s remnants, particularly a young girl named Zoe, from evil zombies.
DreamWorks is in negotiations to acquire the source material. Check out the trailer below and cross your fingers! This could be pretty bitchin’ if pulled off correctly.
