[singlepic=14707,320,240,,left]Quiet Earth reports that Cuba is venturing into the zombie horror film genre with their upcoming “Juan of the Dead” AKA “Juan De Los Muertos.”
The film is currently inco-production between Spain, Mexico, and Cuba with a budget of around 1.3Million. Filming for “Juan of the Dead” no relation to Shaun or Night of the dead will begin shooting in September.
Juan is a typical forty year old slacker. One day Havana begins to fill up with zombies. Juan decides that the best way to cope with it is to prosper. “Juan of the dead, killed their loved ones” is his slogan, and his mission is to help people get rid of those infected around them … for a price. But the situation gets worse — while everyone is escaping to sea as a means to get away, Juan is left with no choice but to become a hero, staying to defend his country and protect his own on an island that has turned into a real bloodbath.
Hmm sounds kinda like our good friend Shaun. But never the less, this is an international film I’m watching for sure. What better than brain eating zombies, than communist brain eating zombies.
