Matador Pictures has announced a six-film slate, the lion’s share of which are genre-based, including two very interesting sounding zombie flicks. Read on for the first details on films that involve the Dark Ages and the opening of an undead theme park!

Screen Daily reports that Plague of the Undead is an action film that was co-written by Paul Gerstenberger, who recently wrote Vertigo’s StreetDance spinoff All Stars, with Orlando Cubitt and is set in the Dark Ages, while Zafari (yes, Zafari) is also written by Gerstenberger and is a co-production with Nick Gillot that takes place in a zombie safari resort where guests pay money to shoot the undead. Man, in a perfect world, huh? That would so friggin’ rule.

Also on the slate is Jonathan Trigell’s sci-fi thriller Genus with Mike Carey attached to write the screenplay. As for the other three flicks, unless you’re into feel-good comedies. you really don’t need to know about them.
