Star Alan Tudyk is making quite the career for himself by battling supernatural baddies of all varieties in the name of comedy. Last seen in Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, his next flick has him duking it out for laughs with the militarized undead. Get ready to join the First Platoon!
In the film Tudyk (pictured right) will be playing “Rock Brannigan”, the leader of a ragtag squad of zombie hunters in the post apocalyptic Southwest. Joining him will be Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, Halloween) as “Rex Necro”, Sid Haig (Spider Baby, The Devil’s Rejects) as “Pa Jericho”, and The Cryptkeeper John Kassir as “Burke”.
Okay, we’re sold on the genre power alone! If handled the right way, this could end up being one of the more fun genre flicks of next year! Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
Look for writer-director Chris Gabriel to unleash First Platoon for release in spring or early summer 2011.
