A Zombie ‘Jurassic Park’ In ‘Zafari’

Matador Pictures has announced a six film slate out of Cannes. Screen Daily reports.

The news comes after the split of the production and financing activities of the company in November 2012, with Gloucester Place Films launched as a subsidiary to manage film financing.

Matador’s slate includes two features written by Paul Gerstenberger, who recently wrote Vertigo’s StreetDance spinoff All Stars.

Plague of the Undead is an action film that was co-written with Orlando Cubitt and “is set in the dark ages,” while Zafari is a co-production with Nick Gillot and “takes place in a zombie safari resort where guests pay money to shoot the undead.

Speaking to ScreenDaily, Matador founder and CEO Nigel Thomas said he expected those two to go into production in late 2013.
