Move over Abe Lincoln! Here comes 'Marilyn Monroe: Zombie Hunter'
If Abe Lincoln can fight vampires, I see no reason why Marilyn Monroe can't tussle with zombies, and apparently neither does filmmaker Thomas J. Churchill.
A sequel to his upcoming zombie period feature Lazarus: Day of the Living Dead, Marilyn Monroe: Zombie Hunter is set to be directed by Churchill from a script he co-wrote with Joe Knetter, and will star model, actress and scream queen Sarah French (pictured) as the iconic blonde bomb-shell turned zombie slayer. David M. Parks will produce.
Principal photography is slated to take place in Hollywood, CA, New York state and Washington DC later this year under the Church Hill Productions/Apothecary Entertainment banner.
“After writing Lazarus:Day of the Living Dead,” Churchill told us of his inspiration for Marilyn Monroe: Zombie Hunter, “the concept of this incredible Hollywood icon as a cool samurai sword using, kick-ass assassin that would get summoned by our President to be humanities' last hope against zombie domination just toyed with me, and I needed to get it out of my head, onto paper and on the screen.”
“The film is going to be a straight-up horror-thriller,” he expounded, “with no room for cheese. Horror fans and Marilyn fans will be proud of the vision I have in store.” Here's the official synopsis: '1960. Beauty Queen. Movie Legend. The world is obsessed with her, with her films and her personal life. But, what they didn’t know was that she was protecting us. Her late night trips to the White House were just the beginning of what the world believed was a scandal. A mutated strain of the Bubonic plague has returned with a vengeance, taking human lives and re-animating the dead who have returned to the world with the intention to feast. When keeping this world threat out of the headlines, President Kennedy summons the best fighter and tracker he knows to help him extinguished the undead that have returned. Being a Hollywood movie star was her job, zombie hunter was her skill.'
