Juan of the Dead is one zombie flick we have been following for sometime and each time I read that title I get a little more excited. Juan of the Dead is picking up speed at an extraordinary pace and has been acquired for many territories and now the UK and Japan will get their fix.
According to Variety, Metrodome has acquired the UK rights while Fine Films have nabbed the Japanese rights to Alejandro Brugues’ zombie comedy Juan of the Dead.
Cinetic Media is still in negotiations for the North American distribution rights.
Synopsis: “Juan is a typical forty-year-old slacker. One day Havana begins to fill up with zombies. Juan decides that the best way to cope with it is to prosper. “Juan of the dead killed their loved ones” is his slogan, and his mission is to help people get rid of those infected around them … for a price. But the situation gets worse — while everyone is escaping to sea as a means to get away, Juan is left with no choice but to become a hero, staying to defend his country and protect his own on an island that has turned into a real bloodbath.” An Official Website is up but doesn’t appear to be any activity.”
