Outpost Facebook Page
Having been a zombie for both Joe Lynch and George A. Romero, I can tell you first-hand that there’s something ridiculously cool about donning the make-up and getting to feast. Think you have what it takes?
If you have the notion and are in the Glasgow, Scotland area and are up for the challenge, head on over to the official Outpost II: Black Sun Facebook page and message them for details about how YOU can become an undead movie star!
With just a couple of weeks left to shoot, everything is looking excellent on the film’s front as you’ll see from the imagery below. We cannot wait!
Steve Barker again directs from the script he co-wrote with screenwriter Rae Brunton. The cast includes Richard Coyle (W.E, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, A Good Year, The Libertine) and Catherine Steadman (“The Tudors”) with Julian Wadham (Outpost, The English Patient) returning as Hunt and Johnny Meres as The Breather.
The year is 1945, the closing stages of WW2, and a German scientist by the name of Klausener is working on frightening new technology with the power to create an immortal Nazi army. Flash-forward to the present day, and a NATO task force is hurriedly deployed to Eastern Europe, where a sinister enemy appears to be mercilessly killing everything in its path. But this is no ordinary foe. Only Helena (Steadman), a gutsy investigator on the trail of notorious war-criminal Klausener, accepts the reality of what they are facing, a battalion of Nazi Storm-Troopers, a veritable zombie army on the march. With the help of Wallace (Coyle), a man who’s been chasing Nazi secrets for years, the two team up with a Special Forces Unit to venture deep behind enemy lines. Their mission: to fight their way back to the source of this evil army and prevent the seemingly inevitable rise of the 4th Reich.
Thanks to Andy Erupts for the heads-up!
