The US had its Dawn. The UK had Shaun. Now Cuba has … Juan? Yes, you read that right, kids! The hottest import coming out of Cuba next to cigars will be a little zombie flick called Juan of the Dead, and we’ve got a few details for you!
Juan De Los Muertos, as its known in its homeland, is a co-production among Spain, Mexico, and Cuba budgeted at 1.3 million Euros that’s set to begin shooting this September.
Check out the early artwork and the translated synopsis below courtesy of Quiet Earth.
Juan is a typical forty-year-old slacker. One day Havana begins to fill up with zombies. Juan decides that the best way to cope with it is to prosper. “Juan of the dead killed their loved ones” is his slogan, and his mission is to help people get rid of those infected around them … for a price. But the situation gets worse — while everyone is escaping to sea as a means to get away, Juan is left with no choice but to become a hero, staying to defend his country and protect his own on an island that has turned into a real bloodbath.
