Warner Independent Pictures will remake the German comedy Night of the Living Dorks, and has set Chris Bishop to write the script. Vertigo’s Roy Lee and Doug Davison are producing along with Adam F. Goldberg.
Described as Revenge of the Nerds meets Shaun of the Dead, the story revolves around three not-so-cool school friends who decide to try an old voodoo ritual. When they later die in a car crash, they find themselves reborn as zombies, and try to take advantage of their new lifestyle.
“Dorks” would be one of Vertigo’s first comedies.
