Director Matthias Hoene is known for his commercials, and his first straight to video feature Beyond the Rave and plans to make CvsZ a "scary, darkly comic, witty and anarchic" zombie story. Unfortunately the last status I can find on this is that it was in active development in May, but I've got an email in to see if we can get further details. For now, enjoy the lengthy synopsis below:

"GUY (The Brains) and JIMMY (The Brawn) are best buddies recently released from prison. They immediately set off on another heist to bag a cool one million pounds. All runs smoothly apart from one minor glitch in the form of sexy hostage LESLIE – they grab her too. Holed up in East London they celebrate their success.


Meanwhile during the excavation works for the Olympic Games, an ancient tomb harking back to the days of the Black Plague is opened. The archaeologists are struck down by a mutated virus that turns them into brainless man-eating creatures. Soon London is overrun by Zombies. Quarantined and sectioned off by the Army, everyone in London is left to fight for their lives.

So what do you do with all the money in the world when everyone’s dead?

The gang decide to chance it on the street, and fight their way out, but they get more than they bargained for when one of the gang is bitten and they are forced to retreat. The crooks tool up at the local police station which they discover is empty because the bent coppers are too busy looting and chasing the missing one million to restore order.

The Cockneys go into hiding in the one place to which they thought they would never return; prison. The Zombies break into the prison and the gang find themselves caught between the undead, the savage inmates and the Army, here to ‘rescue’ survivors, and of course their one million!!! Can Guy and Jimmy ‘escape’ with their lives, their loot and the girl in this unrelenting action Zombie flick?"
