Artisan Entertainment has snatched up the Brian Lynch-penned comedy “Everybody’s Dead.”

The film will be produced by Greg Silverman and directed by Lynch, who recently helmed the micro-budget comedy “Big Helium Dog” for Kevin Smith’s View Askew Prods.

“Dead” focuses on a wild frat party that takes a darkly comic turn when the coeds are set upon by zombies.

“This film bets on breaking talent, which is one of the things we hope Artisan will become recognized for,” said Artisan prexy of production Jon Shestak. “This movie is funny; it’s a big gross-out comedy, and it’s been too damn long since we have had a zombie movie.”

Artisan’s exec VP of production Caitlin Scanlon, along with development exec Dana Reid, will oversee the project.

Lynch is repped by Bender-Spink Management, the Endeavor Agency and attorney Jeff Franken of Colden & McKuin.
