Night of the Living Dead: Origins acquired by Meyers Media Group

Apr. 18, 2012by: Eric Walkuski

Now this is a long time coming; we've been faithfully writing about NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: ORIGINS since its announcement back in September of 2009, and now we're just a little bit closer to actually seeing the Zebediah de Soto picture.

Newly-formed international sales company Meyers Media Group announced today that they have picked up all international rights to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: ORIGINS from Simon West Productions.

Danielle Harris, Tony Todd, Tom Sizemore, Bill Moseley and Joe Pilato star in the film, which has the following synopsis: In the film, New York lies in ruin when zombies have overtaken the city. For the few people left alive there is only one dream survival. That includes Ben (Tony Todd) and Barbra (Danielle Harris), two survivors who find themselves trapped and fighting to escape the hordes of undead that walk the streets.

Shot completely in a CG environment using stereoscopic 3D, the film employs the next generation facial capture technology that is a step beyond any previous versions used for this type of film. The look is a marriage between the graphic novel and modern animation, making it a true graphic film that younger audiences will be more accustomed to experiencing.

The film has been produced with the cooperation of The Graphic Film Company in association with Giant Studios, whose credits include motion capture work on The Adventures of Tintin and Avatar.

Meyers will be bringing NOTLD:O to the Cannes Film Festival next month. Check out the promo teaser below.

hmmm? It seems kinda cool, but I would have rather had a live action film with Tony Todd. If this animation is what we can expect from the film, then it doesn't really do much for me.
