How’s that for a headline right out of a horror movie? While in all actuality what we’re talking about here is far less dramatic, we just couldn’t resist!
According to Screen Daily, UK sales outfit AV Pictures has signed on to handle international sales for Second World War action-horror movie The 4th Reich, directed by Shaun Robert Smith. AV will begin pre-sales ahead of the film’s May 2012 start of shoot date.
Sean Pertwee, Tom Savini, and Doug Bradley have signed on to star in the film. Additional casting is still under way.
During the early hours of June 6th, 1944, a bloody but victorious offensive took place in occupied Western Europe that would claim thousands of lives. Codenamed ‘Operation Overlord,’ the armies of the combined allied forces would begin their long push to Berlin, with the aim of bringing down the despised Nazi regime.
But the chilling realities of Hitler’s true intentions are exposed: to create a force that can never be beaten, a 4th Reich – The New World Order. A team of Nazi doctors and scientists were charged with generating a superior race. Their experiments and research would produce unspeakable evil and change the face of humanity forever. A small select brigade of soldiers from the British 3rd Infantry Division, under the command of the battle hardened Captain Bathurst, embark on a dangerous quest to liberate Europe. Fighting their way through the French countryside, villages, and war ravaged towns, with every advance they discover increasingly strange events until they reach an abandoned research facility where the true horrors begin.
