Cannes 2013: First Word on Zombie Western Bullets for the Dead and Vampire Film Bite
Word is coming out of the 2013 Cannes Film Fest that UK-based Stealth Media Group and Cathartic Pictures have teamed up to produce a revolving slate of films, and the first two projects will be a zombie Western and a vampire flick. Read on for the first few details.
Per Deadline, Stealth and Cathartic (Iron Sky producer Cathy Overett’s new shingle ) have set up Bullets for the Dead, a $2M zombie Western, to shoot in Queensland, Australia, in July. It will be followed by Bite, a $5M vampire film slated to shoot in Oz in October. Stealth Australia is also looking to pick up two to three films a year out of Australia.
We should have updates on both productions shortly. In the meantime for more info on the fest, which runs until May 26th, visit the official Festival de Cannes website.
