The Balfour to Direct Jesus Hates Zombies


Based on the graphic novel of the same name

Eric Balfour is making the transition from acting with an adaptation of the graphic novel Jesus Hates Zombies.

The Skyline and Texas Chainsaw Massacre star is partnering with producer Mali Elfman (he worked with her on Do Not Disturb) to bring Stephen Lindsay’s comic book to life.

Michael Mongillo and Jason Alan Smith are penning the script.

Here’s a bit of praise for the screenplay from Balfour: “What most intrigued me about the project was it’s heart and message. There is plenty of comedy and action in the script but what I wasn’t expecting and am most excited about bringing to the screen is it’s message of love and faith. I love when a script can break the mold and offer something unique and I’m going to work my ass off to honor Michael and Jason’s great script, and Stephen’s fantastically unique world. The way I see it Jesus was a bad ass and a revolutionary, who better to save humanity from the zombie apocalypse than JC.”
