A casting change has occurred on First Platoon, the zom-com we introduced to you in June.

It seems Alan Tudyk has ducked out of the lead role of “Rock Brannigan,” making room for actor Scott Gibson (The Pacific). The actor is no stranger to the dead having played a very small role in George Romero’s Diary of the Dead.

In Platoon, he’s the leader of a motley team of zombie fighters in the post-apocalyptic desert southwest. Arron Shiver and Jennifer Skyler, Malcolm McDowell, Sid Haig and John Kassir also star for writer-director Chris Gabriel.
