The Dead was one of the few zombie films in the past year or so that really made our hair stand on end. Now we have word that a second film is in the works and we have a teaser trailer for the sequel below. Dig it.
ShockTillYouDrop.com has learned a script for The Dead 2 is now complete and the Ford brothers intend to begin shooting in February/March of 2013.
Howard Ford says, “We have been receiving so much enthusiasm and demand for a sequel we owe it to the fans of The Dead 1 to deliver something that goes way beyond what we could achieve first time around and the starting point was to find the most stunning and varied landscapes where we have not seen the dead walk before! This teaser trailer is just to give people a little flavour of where we’re heading and to find out if the fans are behind it…”
Jon Ford added, “We want part 2 to do something few sequels can rarely achieve by surpassing the first film in every way! We want to give the fans unique and stunning locations, more intense story and action, while maintaining the emotional heart that runs through the whole film. It’s still a journey movie which will have a controversial edge and a lot more scares!”
The Dead concerned Brian Murphy, a man whose plane crashes in the South African bush, forcing him to cross the vast desert by any means necessary. A daunting task under normal circumstances becomes particularly challenging after the zombie apocalypse.
