23rd Mar 07
More bonkers press releases, this time detailing the latest in that new trend of hip-hop zombie movies. Whatever next?
In the wake of a solar flare of unusual properties, a mismatched group of inner-city survivors must put aside their animosity to escape a Los Angeles now free of gangbangers, but infested instead with blood-sucking zombies!
Stormfront Films is pleased to announce the completion of principal photography on Mutant Zombie From The 'Hood! featuring C. Thomas Howell (Hidalgo, the original thriller The Hitcher, and The Outsiders) in the lead role of Detective David Lang. The cast also included Greg Alan Williams (of Baywatch fame), Tyshawn Bryant, Johanna Watts, Robert Wu and Rachel Montez Collins.
Set in the gang-ruled underbelly of L.A.’s streets, Mutant Zombie From The 'Hood! follows a group of inner-city survivors who fight to flee a city now infested with blood-sucking zombies after a solar flare of supernatural proportions.
Thunder Levin directed and George Saunders produced a script they wrote jointly. Levin and Saunders wrote the science fiction epic 2176 which is being produced by Ron Shusett (Alien, Total Recall and Minority Report) and Daniel Alter (Hitman, Hack/Slash).
The soundtrack will be performed by San Francisco breakout rapper, Vital. Emmy award-winning American Makeup & Effects, whose many credits include Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest as well as various films and episodes of the Star Trek franchise, created the zombie makeup and effects.
The film was shot on location in Los Angeles in February and is slated for a Halloween 2007 release.
