Here at Dread Central we love it when the little guys makes good. Such is the case with Matthew Butler’s newest zombie film based off of his short, The Curse of the Buxom Strumpet. Read on for details.
According to Screen Daily Ian McKellen (X-Men, Lord of the Rings), Judi Dench (Casino Royale), Gillian Anderson (“X-Files”), and Mark Williams (Harry Potter) are attached to star in Matthew Butler’s 18th century zombie romp The Curse of the Buxom Strumpet.
Butler will direct and has co-written the script with Tori Hart for the feature in which “the inhabitants of a small seaside town are struck down with a deadly illness.”
The feature is an extension of Butler’s short comedy film “E’gad Zombies,” also starring McKellen.
Butler and Hart are producing for their UK production company Fizz and Ginger with Margaret Matheson exec producing. Butler is in talks with sales agents in Cannes, with a view to shooting the £2m film in Scotland later this year.
