Wesley Snipes killed off hundreds of vampires in the Blade franchise, now he’s taking a stab at zombies in Outbreak Z, THR reports.
Director Chris Brewster recently told ComicBook.com, “I am so excited to begin the world of Outbreak Z. Wesley is an absolute legend in entertainment and martial arts. It is an honor teaming up with him and joining forces with one of the best in the world. Having him on the team, allows us to create a style of zombie/horror films that have never been seen. This will be an action-packed adventure for everyone. We are breaking all the zombie rules.” Brewster added, “Our zombies will not move or act like anything the audience has seen before.”
The film centers on two SWAT officers on a desperate hunt through an overrun college campus in search of a man who holds a vaccine to the zombie virus. Snipe will star as one of the officers.
The script was penned by Hamid Torabpour, Andrew Kightlinger, and Clint Narramore. Snipes will executive produce Outbreak Z, from Winter State Entertainment.
