With the success of “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” now several months behind him, director Tommy Wirkola is turning his full attention towards “Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead”, the follow up to his 2009 cult hit “Dead Snow.”
Variety is reporting that Wirkola has recruited Martin Starr, Ingrid Haas, and Jocelyn Deboer to star in his upcoming sequel in which a lone survivor of the original Nazi Zombie attack must do battle with an even larger army of zombies. However, this time they have the help of “The Zombie Squad”, a professional group of zombie hunters from the U.S.
If the names aren’t ringing any bells, it’s okay. These three, though having appeared in a few films, are still relative newcomers to Hollywood. Starr had a part in “This is the End” earlier this year, while Ingrid appeared in “Scott Pilgrim vs the World.” It’s always nice to see fresh faces about to be mauled by zombies.
