Time to add a little eye candy to your normally dull Monday morning as legendary actress Dee Wallace (Cujo, The Howling, E.T., Critters, Lords of Salem) talks of her upcoming part in Zombie Killers, which begins shooting this September!
Billy Zane, Dee Wallace, Felissa Rose, and Gabrielle Stone are lined up to star in Elephant’s Graveyard, a zombie horror film shooting in Northeast Pennsylvania this September 2013. With a market over-saturated in everything zombie, the filmmakers plan to avoid a Walking Dead/Living Dead knock-off with a character-driven story that delivers the goods for the sub-genre’s fans.
The film has several sequels already planned under the branding of “Zombie Killers,” which is referenced in the film, as the story focuses on a team of young warriors under the leadership of military vet Zane who stand between the “figures” and their small rural town of Elwood.
Dee Wallace of E.T., The Howling, Critters, and Cujo fame plays Sharon Sommers, a terminally ill mother pushing her son to leave the dying town of Elwood, even if it means facing death beyond its gates. Wallace shares the screen with her real life daughter, Gabrielle Stone, who plays her son’s love interest, Nikki.
Sleepaway Camp‘s Felissa Rose returns from a recently finished turn in the Eric Roberts/Danielle Harris horror-thriller Dead.tv to play a religious zealot who works to convince the town’s residents of a fixed fatalism that can’t be fought.
Harrison Smith directs from his screenplay. Venerated CGI artist Joe Lawson and his Digital Arts company provide the post digital while Angela Johnson of Evolution supervises makeup practical effects.
Principal photography begins September 4th in Northeast Pennsylvania with a projected summer 2014 release.
