Shout! Factory acquired Cockneys vs. Zombies late last year and we now know when you'll be able to start seeing it in the US. We've been told that the movie will see a nationwide theatrical release on August 2nd. It's likely to be limited to major markets, and we'll be sure to let readers know more specifics when they become available.
From the previous acquisition announcement, we know that plan is also to release the movie to VOD and on DVD and/or Blu-ray at a later date.
"Written by James Moran (Torchwood, Severance) and directed by Matthias Hoene, COCKNEYS VS. ZOMBIES boasts an impressive British cast of Michelle Ryan (Bionic Woman, EastEnders), Honor Blackman (Goldfinger, Doctor Who), Alan Ford (Snatch, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), Harry Treadaway (Fish Tank, Control), Rasmus Hardiker (Lead Balloon, Saxondale), Georgia King (The New Normal, The Duchess), Jack Doolan (The Green Green Grass), Dudley Sutton (Lovejoy) and Richard Briers (The Good Life).
This fast-paced horror comedy is the story of Andy (Treadaway) and Terry (Hardiker), two hapless cockney brothers who try to save their granddad’s (Ford) care home by robbing a bank. At the same time, a virus sweeps across East London turning all the inhabitants into flesh eating zombies. Faced with hordes of the undead, the challenge is to rescue a home full of tough old folks, escape with the loot, and get out of London alive!"
