Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.06.12] zombies apocalyptic scifi action



Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables 2) will be headlining the sci-fi action piece Battle of the Damned, a horror actioner set in the aftermath of a deadly viral outbreak. Lungren will play as a private military soldier who leads a handful of survivors and a ragtag band of robots into combat against an army of the infected.

Christopher Hatton is directing from a screenplay he wrote, the tone of which is describes as Escape from New York meets 28 Days Later.

Ehud Bleiberg is producing with Leon Tong of Boku Films. Nicholas Donnermeyer and Lundgren are executive producing.

"It's going to be so intense and thrilling and it's never been seen before! Humans versus zombies versus robots," said Bleiberg.


Full synopsis:
On the outskirts of civilization, a remote test facility lays ruin following a catastrophic security breach. All that remains is a handful of survivors, their small armory of weapons, and a fleet of the infected. The breach lead to a viral outbreak that left hundreds dead or mutated. Now the infected walk the land, stalking the few that stayed alive.

Led by private military operative Max Gatling (Dolph Lundgren, "The Expendables," "Universal Soldier"), our heroes have learned to fight against the infected, in hopes that rescue will soon come from the outside world. What they weren't expecting, though, was the emergence of another deadly threat.

The breach also gave way to the escape of a band of malfunctioning prototype robots. Armed and incredibly dangerous, the robots could either be an indomitable force... or an unexpected ally in their battle against the infected masses.



Filming commences this June in Singapore and Malaysia.

ZOMBIES vs ROBOTS...the not-so-official movie?

I often asked myself when they would finally steal....ahem, be inspired by the comics to create a movie. Allthough a major, big budgeted production would be more recommended I am gladly watching this variant. Better than nothing, eh?
