‘Zombie Pet Shop’ set for animation 3D

Animation Picture Co. acquires E.L. Katz's original script

John Davis’ The Animation Picture Company has acquired E.L. Katz’s original script “Zombie Pet Shop” to be developed as a 3D animated feature film.

Zombie Pet Shop” concerns a mysterious plague that sweeps through a mall pet shop, turning all of the animals into zombies. An ordinary pug named Joey must come to the rescue to find the antidote that will save his four-legged friends, as well as the humans that might take them home.

Davis is producing the project along with Brian Manis, Ash Shah, Dan Chuba and Mark Dippe.

Jeremy Platt, who developed the project with Katz, is co-producing.

“Zombie Pet Shop” marks Katz’s first foray into animation, as the scribe is best known for his genre fare. Katz recently had a hand in writing Lionsgate’s “Dibbuk Box,” and he has the GreeneStreet/Peter Block project “Dark Corners” going into production later this year.

Katz is represented by Gersh and Generate.
