“THE DEAD” Stay with Anchor BayMovies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
THE DEAD 2: INDIA, the Ford Brothers’ sequel to their Africa-set zombie film, has found a home in its predecessor’s distributor.
Anchor Bay will bring THE DEAD 2 to the U.S. this fall. The first film, acclaimed for an old-fashioned undead tale told in an entirely new setting also gained traction for ending up a notoriously difficult production. While there seems to be less hardship involved here, the location again seems to provide unique, stunning backdrop to the horror.
In THE DEAD 2: INDIA, A ship docks fresh from Somalia contains one infected worker that passes unnoticed into the very heart of India’s overpopulated bustling streets, setting off an unstoppable chain of events. Meanwhile, American turbine engineer Nicholas Burton (Millson) is working in the peaceful stunning Indian countryside when he receives a call from his love, a local girl who lives on the outskirts of the slums of Mumbai. She reveals she is now pregnant and scared for her life as chaos and terror have taken ahold of the cities as the dead return to life and attack the living. Nicholas has to battle his way across their 300 mile distance, all of which is ferociously infected. With the help of a young street kid, he has to rely on his wits and sheer brute force to try and save them all.
“We really enjoyed working with Kevin and the rest of the Anchor Bay team on The Dead,” stated Amir Moallemi, Executive Producer. “We felt they did an amazing job which resulted in the film becoming a top selling title in 2012. With THE DEAD 2: INDIA, Anchor Bay was the natural choice for us. We have made an even bigger, more epic movie which we cannot wait to share with the fans.”
