Zombies Put the Bite on McKellen and Dench


A short film by Matthew Butler, entitled E’gad Zombies, is poised to become a feature film that has a surprising cast.

To be titled The Curse of the Buxom Strumpet, the film will star Ian McKellen, Judi Dench, Gillian Anderson and Mark Williams.

Set against the backdrop of a small town in 1713, an illness takes hold of the villagers turning them into unfeeling creatures who eat anything they can get there hands on. Lord Fortitude must lead the small band of survivors and escape to France.

Tori Hart co-scripted the film with Butler. Here are some images from E’gad Zombies. “Strumpet” will roll cameras later this year.
