Netflix’s NARCOS Star Says I LOVE ZOMBIES

Published

on

The star of Netflix hit series Narcos Juan Pablo Raba will topline black comedy-horror film I Love Zombies. Henry Rivero (El Comandante) will co-direct alongside César Oropeza (Puras joyitas), author of both the screenplay and the popular graphic novel.

On top of that, Variety reports that Goya Award winner Marcelo Pont Vergés (The Secret in Their Eyes), the comic-book illustrator, is also attached as film production designer.

The film was confirmed at Cannes by MadLove co-founders Natalia Agudelo and Nicolás Herreño with Alief‘s Miguel Govea and Brett Walker, and David Matamoros and Angeles Hernández at Zentropa Spain.

I Love Zombies not only aims to seek an audience for its main piece, the movie, but to use multiple initiatives of interaction that try to create loyal fans,” said producer Natalia Agudelo, a former director of Bogota Audiovisual Market (BAM).

The film is set to begin filming next year.

Synopsis:

The film narrates a dystopian tale of socio-political intrigue with dark humor and action, where a Central Government’s suicide expedition enters into devastated areas in what used to be a big capital city, now infested with cannibal corpses. Two intertwined stories result from that move, showing a vice-plagued and cruel post-apocalyptic world. The first involves Kid, a young man traumatized by the death of his family at the hands of a horde of walking dead; the other features Lover, a skilled zombie hunter (Raba), whose survival techniques go beyond pragmatism to assassination.

Published

Last week we let you guys know that, while The CW passed on the Supernatural spin-off Wayward Sisters, they had given a fifth season to fan-favorite zombie-comedy series iZombie.

And as cool as that news was, it looks like it comes with a caveat. Yes, it looks like the upcoming fifth season of iZombie will be it’s last.

Series star Rose McIver took to Twitter to confirm the news the other day writing: “So the fifth season of iZombie will be our last. I am therefore committed and excited to make it the best one yet! Really proud to be on a show that celebrates the misfits and I pinch myself every day that I get to be a part of the iZombie world with you guys. Thank you.”

The show, which is based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, and published by DC Entertainment’s Vertigo, is rumored to return during the midseason schedule. We’ll let you know when we hear more.

Are you sad to see the series go? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Synopsis:

Olivia “Liv” Moore (Rose McIver) was a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out…until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. As one of the newly undead, Liv is doing her best to blend in and look as human as possible.
