First-time filmmaker Jason Murphy gave Fango the scoop on his currently filming horror/comedy tentatively titled ZOMBIES! ZOMBIES! ZOMBIES!—and for those genre fans who have grow wearisome of the “reanimated corpse” genre due to the current glut, the producer and director wishes to re-spark your interest. “I love strippers, and I love zombies, and I love Fango!” says Murphy, “So the basic premise of the film is ‘strippers vs. zombies!’ ”
The script by newcomer Tony Giordano revolves around “A drug-cure experiment gone wrong which produces a league of bloodthirsty zombies who attack a gentleman’s club, and the small band of exotic dancers trapped inside who must fight back.” Murphy says of his cast, “We have some of the hottest women on the planet, a few of whom have been featured in publications such as FHM, Maxim and Playboy!”
Lensing in Orlando, Florida, the $200,000 production has tapped FX artist Rick Gonzales, whose previous work includes this year’s zombie opus AUTOMATON TRANSFUSION and 1985’s DAY OF THE DEAD (as makeup assistant) to handle the grue. “ZOMBIES! ZOMBIES! ZOMBIES! is the working title, but we are most likely going to change it to the snappier CRACK WHORE ZOMBIES!” adds Murphy. You can check out the project’s MySpace page here.
