Robert Morris from Smudge Film Productions UK got in touch today to provide Dread Central with a first look at some really cool conceptual artwork for director Shaun Robert Smith’s upcoming The 4th Reich. We definitely like what we see!
According to Morris, “Things are really hotting up in ‘The 4th Reich’ camp with filming scheduled to start in mid-April and pre-production in full swing. Shaun has been busying himself with make-up tests, location recces and 3D tests, etc.”
As reported previously, Tom Savini, Sean Pertwee, Axelle Carolyn, Simon Bamford, and Craig Conway have all come on board to take part in the mayhem. One of the most exciting aspects of this project is that the team intend to “nail” the historical facts by making a war movie with zombies. Dig on the artwork below the synopsis:
June 1944, after the glorious victory on D-day, the armies of the combined allied forces begin their long push to Berlin with the aim of bringing down Hitler and the despised Nazi regime of the Third Reich. But buried deep in secret files is the chilling reality of Hitler’s plan to create an eternal living hell, The 4th Reich.
Dr. Joseph Mengele, Hitler’s chief scientist, was charged with creating a new super army of invincible soldiers. A force that would never be beaten. His experiments and research at the death camps of Auschwitz, Belsen, and Birkenau would create unspeakable evil.
A small brigade of soldiers from 3rd Infantry Division under the command of the battle-hardened Captain Bathurst embark on an ever-darkening quest to liberate Europe. Fighting their way through the French countryside, villages, and war-ravaged towns. Each step discovering progressively strange battles and events until they reach an abandoned research facility where the true horror begins…
