Would you pay good money to take a safari to shoot the walking dead? I know I would! And that's the idea behind OUTPOST director Steve Barker's upcoming thriller GENERATION Z, which has just launched principal photography on location in Wales and on Mallorca, Spain. Now we've learned who will be taking the zombie safari adventure.
Screen Daily is reporting that "Hemlock Grove" actor Dougray Scott, hottie Jessica de Gouw (TV's "Arrow" and "Dracula"), and "The Pacific" actor Martin McCann have all signed on to star in GENERATION Z, which is being produced by Matador Pictures, The Captain Starlight Company and UMedia.
Set in the wake of an apocalyptic zombie outbreak, the film centres on Melanie (de Gouw) and her boyfriend Lewis (McCann) who visit a safari retreat - The ReZort - where every paying guest has a licence to kill the undead.
There they meet Archer (Scott), a former zombie-hunter who has to step up when the security system at the ReZort crashes and unleashes thousands of bloodthirsty zombies back into the wild.
The supporting cast includes Claire Goose, Jassa Ahluwalia and Elen Rhys. Barker directs from a script by Paul Gerstenberger.
Sounds like a fun idea for a flick so I'm curious how this one will turn out.
