Uwe Boll is back into adaptation videogames as he’s acquired the rights to Zombie Massacre, based on the Wii project developed by Benjamin Krotin’s 1988 Games.
Marco Ristori and Luca Boni, who directed Eaters for Boll, will get behind the camera.
Zombie Massacre (AKA Gloom 4) is a 1998 computer game for the Amiga computer. It was a clone of the immensely popular first person shooter Doom on the Amiga.
“A bacteriological weapon – developed by the US Government to create a super soldier – spreads an epidemic in a quiet little town in the middle of Eastern Europe, Roznov. All citizens have been turned into infected zombies. The town is in quarantine, but the Government wants to destroy it to avoid the propagation of the epidemic.
The rest of the world is in the dark about everything. The plan is: to bring an atomic bomb into the nuclear plant of the city to pretend a terrible accident. No one has to know the truth.
A commando of mercenaries is hired to do the mission. The leader is Jack Stone, an ex soldier now in jail to have murdered his brothers in arms during a mission. If he accomplish the mission he will be free. The battle is on. Hordes of monsters against a bunch of men. There is no hope. Who will survive?”
