Just last year it was announced that the guys over at Shout! Factory had acquired the U.S. distribution rights to Matthias Hoene’s Cockneys vs. Zombies, and now we are very pleased to announce that the release date is locked in.
Cockneys vs. Zombies will hit limited theatres this August 2nd. There is also plans to unleash the film onto DVD and VOD, but that date is still unconfirmed.
“Written by James Moran (Torchwood, Severance) and directed by Matthias Hoene, COCKNEYS VS. ZOMBIES boasts an impressive British cast of Michelle Ryan (Bionic Woman, EastEnders), Honor Blackman (Goldfinger, Doctor Who), Alan Ford (Snatch, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), Harry Treadaway (Fish Tank, Control), Rasmus Hardiker (Lead Balloon, Saxondale), Georgia King (The New Normal, The Duchess), Jack Doolan (The Green Green Grass), Dudley Sutton (Lovejoy) and Richard Briers (The Good Life).
This fast-paced horror comedy is the story of Andy (Treadaway) and Terry (Hardiker), two hapless cockney brothers who try to save their granddad’s (Ford) care home by robbing a bank. At the same time, a virus sweeps across East London turning all the inhabitants into flesh eating zombies. Faced with hordes of the undead, the challenge is to rescue a home full of tough old folks, escape with the loot, and get out of London alive!””
