As zombie plots go it’s becoming quite a challenge to re-think the sub-genre and to try and bring a fresh and inventive spin on what otherwise are much rehashed concepts. Well how does this grab ya? New Brit-flick “Abercrombie and Zombie”, to be helmed by ex-‘Top Gear’ director Scott Weintrob, is the tale of Norris Whiffle a recently deceased reality TV star who aims to become America’s first zombie supermodel. This will mark Weintrob’s first full-length feature. No word on casting yet, however, ‘Cold and Dark’ writer and producer Joanne Reay is on board to pen the script.
“The Life And Death And Death Of America’s First Zombie Supermodel is a tribute film to one of the greatest heroes of the Undead civil rights movement.
For too long, zombies were seen as second-class social dead-beats. Decades of struggle ensued before gray-skins gained a voice in politics, music and film. But it took a very special person to rise up from the grave and take on the greatest challenge of them all.
That person was born Norris Whiffle, a reality-show wannabe who died during an ambitious audition for Survivor. When Norris returned, he changed his name to Vincent Vango, in honor of that great Hispanic painter (yeah, we know) who didn’t find fame until after his death.
And so began the pursuit of his new dream – to become America’s first zombie supermodel. He may not have had much of a face. Nor much of a body remaining. But dammit, Vincent had balls.”
