Back in November of last year we shared the news that Shout! Factory had acquired the gore-drenched U.K. comedy-horror COCKNEYS VS. ZOMBIES for distribution in the U.S. and Canada and today, five long months later, we finally have news on when you will be able to see it in the theaters...if you live in the U.S of A, that is.
COCKNEYS VS. ZOMBIES will hit select theaters in the U.S. on August 2. There is still no word on when it hits Canadian theaters, but there are plans to unleash the film on DVD and VOD shortly after its theatrical bow.
Written by James Moran ("Torchwood", SEVERANCE) and directed by Matthias Hoene, COCKNEYS VS. ZOMBIES boasts an impressive British cast of Michelle Ryan ("Bionic Woman", "EastEnders"), Honor Blackman (GOLDFINGER, "Doctor Who"), Alan Ford (SNATCH), Harry Treadaway (FISH TANK), Rasmus Hardiker, Georgia King, Jack Doolan, Dudley Sutton (LOVEJOY) and Richard Briers ("The Good Life").
This fast-paced horror comedy is the story of Andy (Treadaway) and Terry (Hardiker), two hapless cockney brothers who try to save their granddad’s (Ford) care home by robbing a bank. At the same time, a virus sweeps across East London turning all the inhabitants into flesh eating zombies. Faced with hordes of the undead, the challenge is to rescue a home full of tough old folks, escape with the loot, and get out of London alive!”
We'll keep you posted on when you can peep this fun-sounding flick on DVD/Blu-Ray and VOD.
