We first told you about Dead Perros (aka Perros Muertos) way back in February, and after nearly a year of silence there’s finally an update to be had, albeit a small one.
According to Variety Spanish producer Antonia Nava has inked with Telespan 2000 to produce zombie actioner Dead Perros, to be helmed by Koldo Serra (pictured right; Backwoods).
Serra co-wrote Perros with Carlos Garcia Miranda, who penned smash hit TV skein “El Internado”. It will star Spanish heartthrob Hugo Silva. Nava said Perros plays like From Dusk Till Dawn meets Spanish B movies — especially the 70s-80s sub-genre of “quinqui” movies, featuring mop-haired, drug-addled criminals, still only in their teens. According to Nava, budget is around E4 million ($5.6 million).
Dig on the plot crunch — “Perros” has a petty criminal, Cocacolo, pulling a Barcelona bank job and fleeing south, just as a family leaves Northern Spain for holidays. The motley group join together in the Spanish countryside to battle a zombie outbreak sparked by the locals’ consumption of adulterated rapeseed oil.
Even though we don’t have any idea what it is, one thing is for sure. We want NOTHING to do with anyone’s rapeseed.
