We’ve all been waiting patiently for a firm release date Juan of the Dead. While sometime in 2012 is nice, we hate being teased. Focus Features dropped us a line today with the date we’ve been waiting for! Read on!
Directed by Alejandro Brugués, the flick stars Alexis Díaz de Villegas. Focus World, the unique digital distribution initiative owned and operated by Focus Features, will release the movie on August 14th to iVOD and VOD, along with DVD and other formats.
Juan de los Muertos, as it’s known in its homeland, is a co-production among Spain, Mexico, and Cuba budgeted at 1.3 million Euros.
Juan is a typical forty-year-old slacker. One day Havana begins to fill up with zombies. Juan decides that the best way to cope with it is to prosper. “Juan of the dead killed their loved ones” is his slogan, and his mission is to help people get rid of those infected around them … for a price. But the situation gets worse — while everyone is escaping to sea as a means to get away, Juan is left with no choice but to become a hero, staying to defend his country and protect his own on an island that has turned into a real bloodbath.
