Dolph Lundgren's robots-vs-zombies flick Battle of the Damned picked up by Anchor Bay

05.17.2013by: Eric Walkuski

Anchor Bay Films has acquired U.S., Australia and New Zealand rights to the sci-fi action film BATTLE OF THE DAMNED starring Dolph Lundgren. The sci-fi action flick also stars David Field (The Rover), Matt Doran and newcomer Melanie Zanetti.

Anchor Bay Entertainment’s president Bill Clark and acquisitions exec veep Kevin Kasha made the deal and Clark had this lofty praise:

“There truly is no other film like this on the market, it’s got zombies and robots and spectacle. The visual effects are fantastic and this is one of the best roles Dolph has ever had.”

This film, you may recall, is the one where Dolph leads a group of malfunctioning robots into battle with a horde of zombies. Yes, I must assume Bill Clark was correct in his assessment of the project.

Here's the full synopsis:

On the outskirts of civilization, a remote test facility lays ruin following a catastrophic security breach. All that remains is a handful of survivors, their small armory of weapons, and a fleet of the infected. The breach lead to a viral outbreak that left hundreds dead or mutated. Now the infected walk the land, stalking the few that stayed alive.

Led by private military operative Max Gatling (Dolph Lundgren, “The Expendables,” “Universal Soldier”), our heroes have learned to fight against the infected, in hopes that rescue will soon come from the outside world. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the emergence of another deadly threat.

The breach also gave way to the escape of a band of malfunctioning prototype robots. Armed and incredibly dangerous, the robots could either be an indomitable force... or an unexpected ally in their battle against the infected masses.

Christopher Hatton directed from his own script. No release date has been given yet.

Extra Tidbit: Bet you can't wait for this one, am I right?!

If we are very, very, very, very, very lucky, the soon-to-be classic Battle of the Damned contains an intelligent subtextual comment about hegemonic industrialization's effect upon the dehumanized masses and the resulting dialectic discourse manifested in dialogue and actions, and this comment complements and equals those found in such works as anime's Ghost in the Shell and silent film's Metropolis.

However, if not a classic, this robots vs. zombies provides hopefully us damned zombies the tits, gore, and cool special effects that we crave. Remember, fellow zombies, the brain that you consume can always be your own.
