The teaser art for the next zombie themed epic coming out of the UK, Black and Blue Films’ Devil’s Playground, has come our way; and it’s void of floating heads, pensive looking teens, and all the rest of the cliché horseshit we’re spoon-fed here in the States.
Devil’s Playground stars Craig Fairbrass as Cole, a hardened killer searching for a cure to the illness causing a zombie apocalypse across the globe that is also slowly turning him into one. Danny Dyer, Colin Salmon, Sean Pertwee, Lisa McAllister, Alistair Petrie, Jaime Murray, Shane Taylor, Craig Conway, MyAnna Buring, and Del Henney, whom you may remember as one of the villains in Straw Dogs, all co-star. Mark McQueen is in the director’s chair.
“One of the best things about Devil’s Playground is the cast,” says producer Jonathan Sothcott. “In Craig Fairbrass I have the best action guy in the country – Craig does on-screen carnage like nobody else – he’s a bigger, rawer Jason Statham, and I’m very lucky to be doing so many of his movies. In Danny Dyer we had one of the hottest stars in the country. Danny is my generation’s Michael Caine – a truly great screen actor. I also had three of the most beautiful and talented girls in the movie game – MyAnna Buring (The Descent), Lisa McAllister (Dead Cert), and Jaime Murray (Dexter) – they all give terrific performances.”
“Mark McQueen, the director, is an incredibly talented guy. He’s just turned 30, and that’s hard to believe because he’s so skilled and such a mature filmmaker,” Sothcott continues.
“The zombies in the film are played by UK parkour movement specialists Urban Freeflow so they’re not just fast — they move in a very cool, very inhuman way.”
Look for the film to have its world premiere at the Gorezone Film Festival on October 3rd.
