ARC Entertainment has acquired North American rights to “The Walking Deceased,” a sendup of zombie movies and TV shows that aims to be a “Scary Movie”-style takedown of the genre.
Written by Tim Ogletree and directed by Scott Dow, “Walking Deceased” centers on a ragtag bunch of zombie-apocalypse survivors as they set out for a fabled safe haven. Dave Sheridan (“Scary Movie”), Joel Oglesby and Ogletree star.
Distribution deal was pacted by producer Todd Slater with ARC’s Scott Moesta. Jonathan M. Black, Francis Casanova, Philip Marlatt, Derek Lee Nixon, Tim Ogletree, Dave Sheridan, Slater and Kurt Wehner produced the film; Tim Fisher and Ken Tayloe executive produced.
Release date and platforms for “The Walking Deceased” remain to be set.
