It’s Bilbo vs. the undead in an all-out war for The Shire! Oh, how we wish…
Still, we do have something neat for you in the fashion of the first stills of Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Captain America: Civil War) in the zombie pandemic flick Cargo.
Ben Howling will direct with Yolanda Ramke, who has also written the script. Freeman stars alongside Yolanda Ramke, Anthony Hayes, Susie Porter, Caren Pistorius, Kris McQuade, and Simone Landers with David Gulpilil. Kristina Ceyton (The Babadook) is producing.
Cargo is the feature version of a short film that Howling and Ramke released in 2013.
A father who is stranded in rural Australia in the aftermath of a violent pandemic, and infected himself, desperately seeks a new home for his infant child and a means to protect her from his own changing nature. Salvation may lie with an isolated Aboriginal tribe, but to gain access, he must first earn the allegiance of a young indigenous girl on a tragic quest of her own.
