The very first TV spot arrived today for director Matthias Hoene’s new horror comedy, Cockneys vs Zombies. The short and sweet clip is hilarious, and begins with an Olympic theme which is a nice touch. However, it is very funny, and mostly focuses on an old man trying to outrun zombies with his zimmer frame. This looks brilliant!
Cockneys vs Zombies is directed by Matthias Hoene (Beyond the Rave), and Severance screenwriter James Moran is on writing duties here along with Lucas Roche. The cast includes the gorgeous Michelle Ryan, alongside Alan Ford, Rasmus Hardiker, Georgia King, Harry Treadaway, Honor Blackman and Richard Briers. The film arrives in the UK on 31st August.
Cockneys vs Zombies is the story of Andy (Harry Treadaway) and Terry (Rasmus Hardiker): two hapless cockney brothers who try to save their grandad’s (Alan Ford) care home by robbing a bank. At the same time, a virus sweeps across East London turning all the inhabitants into flesh eating zombies. Faced with hordes of undead zombies, the challenge is to rescue a home full of tough old folks, escape with the loot, and get out of London alive!
