Details, Cast, and Early Artwork for Zombie Plantation
And why not, right? We've seen the living dead attack just about every structure you can think of from high-rises to shopping malls. It's about time they paid a bit of attention to the South!
From the Press Release
Huze Media Group is pleased to announce Jake McLaughlin, star of NBC’s “Frontier” pilot, has joined the cast of Zombie Plantation. McLaughlin (Savages, In the Valley of Elah, and Crash) will star as Mike Stone, the Sheriff of Stone Compound. Mike becomes the default leader of a group of survivors at the age of nine following his father's death. He has earned their respect and gratitude over the past twenty years by fighting off the hordes of undead. Together with his wife, Summer, he has carved out a life for their son and every other resident of Stone Compound under trying circumstances.
Zombie and horror genre fans are familiar with multiple award-winning actor Gerald Webb (Zombie Apocalypse, “Law and Order Los Angeles,” Battle of Los Angeles, Air Collision ), who stars as Lee, a dedicated family man whose quick wit is only matched by his quicker temper.
Sean Huze (The Next Three Days, Green Zone, In the Valley of Elah) rounds out the starring cast as Andy, Mike’s right-hand man and deputy. Andy wrestles with loneliness in this post-apocalyptic world.
Production is set to begin this spring in St. Amant, Louisiana. Zombie Plantation was written by the critically acclaimed Sean Huze, whose recent efforts include penning the screenplay for The Tell-Tale Heart starring Rose McGowan, the screenplay for The Wolf, and the stage play The Sand Storm. It is directed by Sonny Marler and produced by Tom Bhramayana (Mysterious Island) and Matt Keith (Mutants, Mysterious Island, The Tell-Tale Heart).
More than a quarter-century has passed since humanity lost the war to the undead. A ragged group of families have managed to survive within the walls of Stone Compound, a makeshift safe haven for survivors led by Mike Stone (McLaughlin). This growing community was never meant to be permanent and is now on the verge of collapse. Resources are low, and for the first time in over two decades, Mike leads a team to scavenge beyond the protection of the compound. He is joined by Lee (Webb) and Andy (Huze). Unknowingly, they trespass on the property of Curtis Strong, the plantation boss of Rosewood.
Strong has embraced the new world. The residents of Rosewood are his slaves who live in fear of being fed to their late family and friends who have been turned into flesh-eating ghouls. Curtis senses that Stone and his friends are not mere drifters, and he is eager to add them to his group of unwilling subjects. Through fear, torture, and manipulation, he tries to find out the location of Stone Compound from his captives. Can Mike do what is necessary to save his people from becoming Curtis' slaves or, even worse, joining the ranks of the undead?
