‘Worst Case’ coin

Holland's Gorehound finances Nazi zombie pic

Dutch production company Gorehound Canned Film has inked with U.S. producer Jack F. Murphy and U.S. producer-sales agent Lars Bjorck at L.B. Films to finance and co-produce Gorehound’s upcoming Nazi zombie pic “Worst Case Scenario.”

Murphy and Bjorck produced “Havoc,” which was directed by Barbara Kopple and scripted by Stephan Gaghan. Murphy also produced Brian Yuzna’s “Progeny.”

“The film has a director with a lot of promise and should be very stylish,” Murphy told Variety.

Financing deal is something of a departure for the Dutch film industry: Low-budget pics’ traditional finance route is to tap local TV coin and subsidies and top up, if possible with foreign sales. “Scenario” has gone the other way round.

It also marks a triple debut, being the first feature of Gorehound, writer-producer Bart Oosterhoorn and Yuzna progeny Richard Raaphorst.

Heavily promoted on the Web, English-lingo pic looks set to roll in October, with a mainly U.S.-U.K. cast and a Dutch crew including cinematographer Gabor Deak.

“Scenario” could ruffle a few nationalist feathers with the pre-shoot marketing campaign quipping, “The only good German is a living one.”

Pic turns on a group of friends who attempt to escape the frenzy surrounding a Holland-Germany soccer World Cup final by having a holiday by the North Sea — where they end up stumbling on a beach bunker chock-a-block with Nazi zombies.
