Exhibit A Pictures, the outfit behind new doc The Life And Times Of Paul The Psychic Octopus (a world premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival today), is now stretching its tentacles into zombie land, reports Screen Daily.

Director Alexandre O Philippe has revealed that he is already at work on Doc Of The Dead, a thoroughgoing new film that will explore zombies on screen in all their manifestations. Shooting is currently underway. Philippe has already spoken to Shaun of the Dead‘s Simon Pegg for the film and is shortly to interview zombie guru George Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, etc.) on camera.

While there have been docs in the past, the zombie genre is still deserving of a “definitive” look at the undead. Hopefully he treks all the way back to Ed Wood’s Plan 9 From Outer Space .

    Im not sure if this is a good idea, Shaun of the dead did’nt impress me. George was the man until he let his writing go south. This idea could be fun though.
