WHAT?S UP WITH WORST CASE SCENARIO?

What?s Up With Worst Case Scenario?

Decaying feet in heavy military boots stagger out of the water on a deserted beach of Holland. The camera moves up to show a large zombie with white bulging eyes and chunks of flesh stitched together stepping on the shore. Zoom out to reveal hundreds of similar living-dead killing machines invading the Dutch coast?

The last images of the promo reel for WORST CASE SCENARIO could make any horror fan salivate; see the film?s website here. But despite having gathered more than 2,000 volunteers in the ranks of the ?Gorehound Guerrillas? over the past two years, director-to-be Richard Raaphorst and producers Bart Oosterhoorn and Fir Suidema are still looking for investors to complete financing for the ambitious ghoul film.

?WORST CASE SCENARIO will tell the story of an American working in Europe who runs into crazed soccer hooligans and, as if that wasn?t enough, an army of Nazi zombies,? explains Oosterhoorn. The idea germinated in the spring of 2002, but things only started moving in early 2004, thanks to Brian Yuzna, whom the producers describe as ?the godfather of the project.? Says Oosterhoorn, ?I got a phone call from Brian, a longtime acquaintance. On another line was producer Jack F. Murphy, calling from LA, who showed serious interest. At the next Cannes film market, we met him and his business partner Lars Bjorck. Things clicked, and we signed a contract that gave them the right to arrange financing.?

There followed a period of stagnation that the filmmakers used to give the screenplay a final polish and shoot a second promo, thanks largely to the Guerrillas? support. Both the script and the new reel were ready just in time for last month?s Cannes market, where, according to Oosterhoorn, Murphy and Bjorck ?arranged a number of meetings with financiers and studio executives. Slowly but surely, a financial structure is taking shape; depending on further wheeling and dealing, it will be either an American/British/Belgian/Japanese co-production or a strictly American thing.? In any case, the movie will be shot in Holland with an American/British cast and a Dutch crew.

According to Raaphorst, who designed the opening credits of Yuzna?s BEYOND RE-ANIMATOR and ROTTWEILER, ?the next step is to show the investors our script,? by Oosterhoorn and BEYOND?s Miguel Tejada-Flores. ?They finished it yesterday after two years of writing and did a really great job. In the meantime, I?ve developed visual concepts for the movie,? one of which is shown above. Raaphorst?s drawings clearly show that the movie?and its zombies?will have a unique visual style.

?With the recent success of zombie movies and LAND OF THE DEAD coming up, now would be the perfect time,? Oosterhoorn concludes. ?Best case scenario, we shoot this winter, with a U.S. theatrical release somewhere in 2006.?
