British directing duo The Ford Brothers are packing their suitcases again and heading, this time, to the wilds of India to shoot the sequel to their African zombie movie, The Dead. Looks like the brothers are fans of shooting under harsh conditions, and this could be the first feature-length zombie film shot in India (although I'm sure there'll be a Bollywood dancing undead movie somewhere that I haven't heard of).
Read on for the official info, and check out the teaser trailer below:
The Ford Brothers, the team behind the acclaimed 'modern Classic' zombie thriller The Dead, have revealed that the much awaited sequel The Dead 2 will be shot in India.
Opening the FrightFest Halloween All-nighter, at London’s Leicester Square, Howard J Ford unveiled a teaser trailer shot on a recent location recce and announced that the film, for which the screenplay is now completed, is anticipated to start production in February/March 2013.
Howard went on to say: "We have been receiving so much enthusiasm and demand for a sequel we owe it to the fans of The Dead 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!".
