The Ford Brothers, the British director, writer and producer team behind the acclaimed African-set zombie road movie THE DEAD, are now in post-production on THE DEAD 2: INDIA, the first-ever International production of a zombie film shot in India, and we have your first look at the flick with the first official trailer below.
THE DEAD 2: INDIA follows the story of American engineer Nicholas Burton (Joseph Millson) in a race against time to reach his pregnant girlfriend Ishani Sharma (Meenu). Burton enlists the help of an orphan street kid Javed (Anand Goyal) and together they make a perilous 300 mile journey across deadly landscapes as a zombie apocalypse threatens to engulf the entire nation.
Howard J Ford, one half of the Ford Brothers writing/directing duo, shared his thoughts on the sequel, stating
“Jon and I knew we’d get around to making a sequel one day as there was plenty of scope to where we could take our idea of abject horror and emotional devastation presented against a stunning natural backdrop. But it was while we were escorting The Dead to various film festivals around the world, listening to the overwhelmingly positive feedback and reading all the Internet comments, that we felt compelled to make another film pretty quickly to satisfy the demand we knew was out there. We wrote the sequel frighteningly quickly, tapping into every constructive comment from true fans of the genre so we could make a film we feel we owe to all the people who supported The Dead”.
