The Dead is Going Theatrical in the U.S.


Howard J. Ford’s zombie film

Howard J. Ford, director of The Dead, was able to reveal today that U.S. distribution is right now being agreed and will be announced shortly.

“Sorry it’s taken a long while to get news out. In truth, it’s taken us a year longer than anticipated for distribution to be agreed but for very good reason: We could have taken 100+ deals from distributors for The Dead to just go out on DVD but we didn’t nearly kill ourselves shooting this movie on 35mm film across Africa for it not to go out on the big screen.”

Although unable to say who has bought the film, Ford revealed that, “distribution in the U.S. will happen theatrically, initially in 20 major U.Ss cities this spring and then spread outward depending on how many people actually turn up to see it.”

Who’s it going to be? Who picked up distro? IFC? Magnet Releasing? Hang tight and we’ll bring you the news shortly…
