ARC Entertainment picks up zombie spoof The Walking Deceased

A little over a year ago we told you about WALKING WITH THE DEAD, a sendup of zombie movies and TV shows that aims to be a SCARY MOVIE-style takedown of the genre. Now the film has been retitled to THE WALKING DECEASED and Variety is reporting that ARC Entertainment has acquired North American rights to the film with plans to release it later this year.

Directed by Scott Dow and written by Tim Ogletree, the film stars Dave Sheridan (SCARY MOVIE), Joey Oglesby (FRUITVALE STATION, NBC’s "Friday Night Lights") and Tim Ogletree (SUPERNATURAL ACTIVITY).The story follows...

...a group of survivors from all walks of the apocalypse – an idiotic Sheriff with definite coma-induced brain damage, his hardass son and a hobo with only a crossbow to stave off the walking dead, four squabbling friends forced to survive this zombieland together, and a lonely zombie who just needs love to fully regain his warm body – who leave their once-safe mall hideout in search of the rumored Safe Haven Ranch, a refuge untouched by the zombie virus that has ravaged humanity. But despite the comforting name, they discover that this sanctuary may not be as welcoming as advertised.

Tearing apart powerhouses like The Walking Dead, Zombieland, Warm Bodies, World War Z, Shaun of the Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and even Romero's iconic Night of the Living Dead, THE WALKING DECEASED rips the flesh off the spoof genre and infects it with a virus too hilarious not to spread.

Release date and platforms for THE WALKING DECEASED remain to be set but we'll keep you updated.
