Pic is first made with Grindhouse

CANNES — Maverick Red, the L.A.-based genre arm of Maverick Pictures, has set “Paradise Lost,” a remake of a Swedish zombie horror pic, as the first production under its new alliance with Sweden’s Grindhouse Pictures.

Producers on the retread are Maverick Red’s Eric Thompson, Mark Morgan and Guy Oseary and Grindhouse’s Christian Hallman. Location scouting for a South Carolina shoot is now under way.
