Cockneys vs. Zombies drops a great synopsis on us, what if London was overridden by zombies. Most people are loving the London 2012 Olympics and for good reason. Empire has just dropped the news on the official UK poster and I am liking the imagery. The hand busting out of the ground while London is gripped in those undead zombie hands. Hopefully the movie does as good. Cockneys vs. Zombies will hit UK theaters this August 31, 2012.
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!
Cockneys vs. Zombies is directed by Matthias Hoene and will star Michelle Ryan, Harry Treadaway, Honor Blackman and Jack Doolan.
