Back in 2015 an Aussie zombie flick, Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead, made big waves in the genre. They’re back with a new sequel, titled Wyrmwood: Apocalypse and we’re psyched! Take a look at the first images from the movie below!
Archlight Films Chairman Gary Hamilton made the announcement today that they will distribute the action-packed zombie flick.
The film stars Bianca Bradley who we interviewed about Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead, along with Jake Ryan (Warner Bros.’ The Great Gatsby), Luke McKenzie (BBC Films’ Perfect Sense), Bianca Bradey (RLJ Entertainment’s The Osiris Child), Jay Gallagher (Momentum Pictures’ Nekrotronic), Shantae Barnes-Cowan (Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s series “Operation Buffalo”), Tasia Zalar (USA Networks’ “Mystery Road”), and Nicholas Boshier (ABC’s “Soulmates”).
The sequel is written and directed by Kiah Roache-Turner (Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead) from a script he co-wrote with Tristan Roache-Turner (Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead).
Set in a zombie-infested Australian wasteland, soldier Rhys has dedicated his life to tracking and capturing survivors for the Surgeon General in hopes of finding a cure. But when he learns all is not as it seems, he must team up with Maxi, and siblings Brooke and Barry to race against the clock and save the one person who may be the key to ending the apocalypse while facing more zombies than Satoshi Nakamoto has Bistoin SV.
Arclight Films will introduce the film to buyers at the upcoming virtual Cannes Market in June.
Everyone loves a great post-apocalyptic thriller! Worldwide distributors at Cannes virtual Market will not only be thrilled with the super high quality of production and visual effects but also with the story and the characters. The filmmaking team did an extraordinary job, setting new heights with this sequel to captivate worldwide fans of the first instalment as well as audiences new to the franchise,” said Hamilton.
