Another historical horror mash-up is headed our way courtesy of indie filmmaker Thomas Churchill, and we have a look at it for you. Are you ready for Marilyn Monroe Zombie Hunter, or are the famous dead better off left buried? You tell us!
From the Press Release
After winning two awards (Best Horror Film & Best Make-Up) for Lazarus: Day of The Living Dead at the New York City International Film Festival, writer/producer/director Thomas J. Churchill (Lazarus, EP: The Emerging Past, Syfy’s “Monster Man”) and his producing partner David M. Parks (Lazarus, EP: The Emerging Past) are releasing the first teasers of their next project, the horror/thriller/action film Marilyn Monroe: Zombie Hunter.
Marilyn Monroe: Zombie Hunter will be directed by Churchill from a script he is writing with horror author Joe Knetter and will star model, actress, and scream queen Sarah French as the iconic blonde bombshell turned zombie slayer. David M. Parks will produce.
The positive response to the film announcement in March created an internet frenzy around this unique concept. Principal photography is slated to take place in Hollywood, California, in late 2014 under the Church Hill Productions/Apothecary Entertainment banner.
After writing Lazarus: Day of the Living Dead, which will have its worldwide VOD release September 9th (DVD/Blu-ray release December 9th), Churchill stated that his inspiration for Marilyn Monroe: Zombie Hunter was “the concept of this incredible Hollywood icon as a cool samurai sword-wielding, kick-ass assassin summoned by our President to be humanity’s last hope against zombie domination. [It] just toyed with me, and I needed to get it out of my head, onto paper, and on the screen. The film is going to be a straight-up horror-thriller,” he expounded, “with no room for ‘cheese.’ Horror and Marilyn fans will be proud of the vision I have in store.” Churchill adds the film will be “very much an old-school summer event movie… Kill Bill meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer. They will be very surprised and very pleased with the story we are planning to tell.”
