Excited for the upcoming zombedy Cockneys vs. Zombies? Then you’ll be happy to hear that the flick is opening in the UK on August 31 with the U.S. premiere set for Fantastic Fest this September. Our friends over at Empire just delivered the official quad poster. Dig it!
The movie is written by James Moran (Severance) and details the story of a group of bank robbers who unlock a 350-year-old vault only to unleash an army of zombies.
Michelle Ryan (188.8.131.52.), Harry Treadaway (Control), Honor Blackman (Bridget Jones’ Diary) and Jack Doolan (Cemetery Junction) all star in Matthias Hoene’s feature Cockneys vs. Zombies.
Cockneys vs. Zombies is the story of Andy (Harry Treadaway) and Terry (Rasmus Hardiker): two hapless cockney brothers who try to save their grandad’s (Alan Ford) care home by robbing a bank. At the same time a virus sweeps across East London, turning all the inhabitants into flesh-eating zombies. Faced with hordes of undead zombies, the challenge is to rescue a home full of tough old folks, escape with the loot, and get out of London alive!
