Ellen Page has taken the lead role in the new zombie thriller called The Third Wave. This film will have a zombie twist in which humans are turned into zombies and then cured. The story “is set in a time after a virus that transformed humans into zombie-like monsters has been cured. But many of the once-infected humans are now shunned by society and even their families, creating social unrest that leads to militant government interference.” David Freyne will direct The Third Wave, which he also wrote, this will mark his directorial debut. Sam Keeley will also star in the new zombie film that will start shooting in Ireland later this 2016.
The Third Wave started as a proof of concept short film titled The First Wave received a good bit of attention.
Ellen Page said about the film:
The Third Wave brings an entire new perspective to the zombie genre, which I love. David Freyne truly shifts his lens on society’s role in the apocalyptic world. I’m so grateful for this opportunity to share his thoughtful approach to horror with audiences.
