'I Love Sarah Jane' Zombie Short Being Adapted for a Feature Film
Just last month we got a look at the first trailer for the Sundance selected, chaotic drama Hesher starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Now it looks like director Spencer Susser will return to his roots for one of his next projects. The Age (via The Playlist) reports Susser is in the midst of adapting his short film I Love Sarah Jane (watch it below) into a feature length film. Though the title implies a simple romance, the story actually follows love in the midst of a zombie-infested, post apocalyptic world. There's nothing quite like embracing and sharing a kiss while a horde of zombies claws and staggers your way wanting your love stricken hearst and brains.
The film is almost four years old now, but features a now recognizable name in Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) along with relatively unknown talents like Brad Ashby, Valdimimir Matovic, Beau South and Peter Yacoub. The film still stands strong as a solid short film even with the cheesy, outdated special effects work. We all have to start somewhere, right? Anyway, with "The Walking Dead" making waves on cable and projects like Zombies vs. Robots getting off the ground, it's probably a good time for a zombie fueled romance. What do you think?
