‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters’ helmer Tommy Wirkola is back shooting his Nazi zombie sequel ‘Dead Snow 2’. And a trio of new cast members have joined the production which includes former ‘Freaks and Geeks’ and ‘This is the End’ star Martin Starr, Ingrid Haas (‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’) and Jocelyn Deboer. The follow-up, now being touted as ‘Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead’, will follow the sole survivor of a Nazi zombie attack (played by Vegar Hoel) who battles an even larger army of Zombies with the help of a professional gang of American zombie killers who call themselves the Zombie Squad.
The original ‘Dead Snow’ went a little something like this…
“Several friends take to the mountains and shack-up in the wilderness of back-of-beyond to enjoy a little R & R together, their peace is soon interrupted by a mysterious old man, warning them of a local curse that during the German occupation of the local area that these Nazi invaders were brutal and harsh in their methods of control. Telling of the legend of the villager’s revolt that drove them up into the cold, dark mountains where they perished, that is until rumour of their return in the form of zombies, evil Nazi zombies.”
