Well its been a very long time since we heard anything about Howard J. Ford's African zombie film, it just seemed to have vanished, but thanks to the guys at STYD, that is all about to change, as The Dead is finding U.S. distribution for a theatrical release and will be announced soon, hopefully.
Director Howard J. Ford told STYD: "Sorry it's taken a long while to get news out. In truth, it's taken us a year longer than anticipated for distribution to be agreed but for very good reason: We could have taken 100+ deals from distributors for The Dead to just go out on DVD but we didn’t nearly kill ourselves shooting this movie on 35mm film across Africa for it not to go out on the big screen."
Apparently The Dead will be shown initially in twenty major cities this coming Spring, depending on how many people turn up for the initial release, if all is well the film will expend to further cities.
Who do you think has picked up The Dead for a theatrical release? I'm thinking Magnet Releasing as they seem to be picking up loads of intriguing films recently.
Synopsis: "After his plane crashes in the South African bush, Brian Murphy joins forces with Daniel Dambele to cross the vast desert by any means necessary. A daunting task under normal circumstances becomes particularly challenging after the zombie apocalypse."
