Brace yourself, Scotland, this is just going to be more fun than the law allows. Sir Ian McKellen (X-Men, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit), Dame Judi Dench (Casino Royale, Bond 23), Gillian Anderson (X-Files) and Mark Williams (Harry Potter) will invade your space later this year turning Scotland into 18th century England. Matthew Butler will adapt his 2010 short film E’gad Zombies, which also starred McKellen, into the feature film, The Curse of the Buxom Strumpet. According to Screen Daily, the independent UK feature will be set in a small British seaside town where the residents are struck down with a “deadly illness,” which all the conspiracy theorists know is just code for “zombie outbreak.”
How hard can this be when you have Gandalf and/or Magneto, M, Agent Scully and Arthur Weasley fending off a group of villagers that have turned into unfeeling creatures, i.e. zombies. Should be a no-brainer. Oops, sorry.
