Alan Tudyk Leading the Indie Zombie Comedy 'First Platoon'
It's almost a guarantee that at any moment, a new zombie movie is the works, like this. Bloody-Disgusting has learned that cult favorite actor Alan Tudyk (last seen in Tucker & Dale vs Evil, Death at a Funeral, and on "Dollhouse") is the latest to join a great cast for an indie zombie comedy being put together called First Platoon. Written and directed by Chris Gabriel, First Platoon is about a ragtag squad of zombie hunters in the post apocalyptic Southwest. The film is an "homage to a genre virtually created by George Romero," and stays true to the classic zombie lore, while offering a fast moving adventure with plenty of hilarity. Read on!
Tudyk will lead the squad of zombie hunters and will play a character named "Rock Brannigan." The rest of the First Platoon contains: Malcolm McDowell (Halloween) as "Rex Necro", Sid Haig (House of 1000 Corpses) as "Pa Jericho", John Kassir (The Straun House) as "Burke", Arron Shiver (The Book of Eli) as "Pete Davis", and newcomer Jennifer Skyler as "Molly Mcguire." Shooting is set to begin this summer in Albuquerque, with an expected release sometime early next year. This seems like it's one of those awesome indie horror comedies that could turn out great, especially with the cast they have. Stay tuned for updates!
