Producer Chad A. Verdi, who is currently riding a wave a horror success with his Robert Englund vehicle Inkubus, is refusing to sit on his newly achieved laurels. Although his next film, the zombie thriller Infected, isn’t due for release until Halloween, a prequel has already been announced.
Infected stars Michael Madsen, William Forsythe and Christy Romano in a struggle for survival as humans turn into zombie-like beasts from a blood infection. However, in even bigger news, Verdi has announced that a prequel to Infected is already in the works which Verdi himself will direct. According to the producer, the wheels are turning and buyers are lined up for this one. Madsen will return for the prequel.
Couple this news with the fact that Inkubus currently sits at #7 in Redbox rentals, available in 100 million homes On Demand and with over 60,000 DVDs sold, and it looks like Verdi and his crew are forging a permanent name for themselves in the horror genre.
