The deal includes all theatrical, VoD, television and home video rights. Doppelgänger Releasing plans to distribute the film towards the end of the year.

The film, originally released in Greece in 2009, is described as a bloodbath in the vein of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and 28 DAYS LATER and features a cameo appearance from genre fave Billy Zane. The synopsis reads...

EVIL was defeated three days ago and everything has changed. An ancient force transformed people to blood-thirsty zombies.That wasn't the first time as 2800 years ago the situation was similar. Will they do the same today? Will they revive THE TIME OF HEROES?
