One of Korea’s leading production houses and a top talent agency, shingle is coy about where on the scale between fiction and documentary “Zombie” lies. Pic documents the daily lives of a small community of the living deceased who make their home in Los Angeles.

“Zombie” lenses in Hollywood in April and will be produced by Lee Lee Films, headed by Lee In-Ah. His credits include Wim Wenders’ “Don’t Come Knocking” and “Land of Plenty.”

It’s now high time to go beyond that market,” said iHQ prexy Teddy Jung Hoon-tack. “One way to do this is to produce films in English for a broader audience. No project is better than ‘American Zombie’ to help lead the way.”
