AFM 2011: The Deadheads Find U.S. Distro
One flick we've been talking about a lot around here is the new zombie buddy comedy flick DeadHeads and with good reason, too. It looks like tons of fun. Apparently someone else thought so as the movie has finally found some Stateside distro.
From the Press Release:
Freestyle Digital Media has acquired the domestic rights to DEADHEADS, Best Horror Film Winner at the Traverse City Film Festival 2011 and Outstanding Achievement in Filmmaking Winner at the Newport Beach Film Festival 2011. The film is slated for a domestic release in 1st quarter 2012.
DEADHEADS is a return to the great comedy/adventure films of the 80′s. The story follows two zombie slackers, Mike and Brent, who find themselves surprisingly reborn from the dead amid a disastrous zombie outbreak. After discovering an engagement ring in his coat pocket, Mike enlists his new found zombie pal, Brent, to embark on a quest in search of his lost love.
The deal was negotiated by FDM’s CEO Susan Jackson, producer Andy Drummond, and director Brett Pierce. “DeadHeads has generated great press and a huge fan base from its remarkable worldwide horror festival run, and we believe the film has the makings of a cult classic in the comedy horror market,” Jackson said.
Deadheads (review here), written and directed by Brett Pierce and Drew T. Pierce, stars Michael McKiddy, Ross Kidder, Markus Taylor, Thomas Galasso, Benjamin Webster, Greg Dow, Natalie Victoria, and Eden Malyn.
