Some may say the zombie genre has become over saturated and to be fair, I am one of them. But, with the genre being so unique and vast, we should never jump to conclusions as we have just received word of a new zombie flick which takes the sub-genre in a totally different direction.
According to Deadline, QED International‘s Bill Block has made a pre-emptive acquisition of 19, a film that involves zombies, but takes that genre in a new direction, in that everybody over the age of 19 turns into a walking corpse. That leaves a civilized world to be run by kids.
The pitch is said to be written by Jim Agnew & Sean Keller, and the intention is to turn the project into a trilogy.
Jeff Chan has been attached to direct the project after he gained attention with his Call of Duty short film (see below).
While it is still too early to make any judgement’s, I’m rather excited with the films premise. What do you guys think? Hit up the comments below.
