For Immediate Release:
If there's one thing we love about our members, it's their vigilance. ZS members are always on the lookout for unauthorized uses of the Zombie Squad name and logo, and they notify us as soon they think they've found one.
So, when news of a certain movie featuring a group of American zombie hunters named Zombie Squad started surfacing on the internet, our members started emailing us. They wanted us to know that someone was using our name.
Well folks, we know. And we are excited to let you know that this is a completely authorized use of the Zombie Squad name.
Zombie Squad International is excited to announce that we have entered into an agreement with Tommy Wirkola and his production company, Tappeluft Pictures, in regards to feature the organization in Dead Snow: Red vs Dead, the sequel to the Sundance hit from 2009. The movie is currently being filmed in Iceland and is slated for release in 2014.
From the production company:
"Director Tommy Wirkola is back in Norway and has started working on Dead Snow: Red vs Dead . The film is the sequel to Dead Snow, which was featured as one of Rolling Stone's Top 10 Zombie Movies of All Time. The film will be shot in both English and Norwegian, and follows the sole survivor of a Nazi zombie attack as he battles an even larger army of zombies with the help of a professional gang of American zombie killers known as, the Zombie Squad."
That's right! 2014 will bring a fictionalized version of ZS to movie screens, DVD players, and other formats across the world. Watch the ZS forums for updates and exclusive information about the Zombie Squad's role in the movie as details become available.
