‘Walking Dead’ Actor Steven Yeun to Star in Action Movie ‘Mayhem’

Steven Yeun and Samara Weaving will star in the action movie “Mayhem,” sources have confirmed to Variety.

Joe Lynch is directing the film with Circle of Confusion producing. The company also produces Yeun’s AMC zombie drama “The Walking Dead.” Confusion partner Lawrence Mattis and head of production Matt Smith are producing with Royal Viking Entertainment’s Sean Sorensen.

Matias Caruso penned the script, which tells the story of a virus that infects a corporate law office on the day attorney Derek Saunders (Yeun) is framed by a co-worker and wrongfully fired. The infection is capable of making people act out their wildest impulses. Trapped in the quarantined building, our hero is forced to savagely fight tooth and nail for not only his job but his life.

The film is being financed by Avva Pictures, with Avva principal Mehrdad Elie also producing; Avva president of production Parisa Caviani is exec producing.

The pic is due to begin principal photography later this month on location in Belgrade, Serbia.

Yeun is best known for playing Glen on “The Walking Dead,” and the film would mark the actor’s biggest role to date. He recently appeared in “I Origins.” Yeun is repped by by Paradigm, Gotham/Principal and attorney Adam Kaller.

Weaving recently starred in McG’s “The Babysitter” for New Line. She is repped by CAA, Untitled and Shanahan Management in Australia.

The news was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.
