The EFM is destroying my Saturday morning as I’m stuck reporting on various, unnecessary horror sequels that I will be the first in line to see. Unnecessary? Ok, I should shut my mouth.
Writer and director Tommy Wirkola, who saw his studio debut Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters hit theaters last month, is returning to his native Norway to direct the action-filled Dead Snow: War of the Dead, reports Screen Daily.
“Set to be released in both English and Norwegian, the new film follows the sole survivor of a Nazi zombie attack who battles an even larger army of Zombies with the help of the Zombie Squad, a professional gang of zombie killers from the US.”
The film is a sequel to Wirkola’s successful cult hit Dead Snow, which premiered at Sundance in 2009. I really disliked the first film, although I thought Wirkola’s heart was in the right place. Hopefully, this time around, he’ll knock it out of the park.
Wirkola says of the new script: “[It's] bigger, scarier, funnier, more action-filled and gorier than the previous one.”
