Production company Benderspink continues its comic-book roll, picking up the film rights to Red 5’s new horror/action series ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction #1.
Created by Underworld screenwriter and Marvel’s New Warriors scribe Kevin Grevioux, ZMD is the story of a government weapons program in which zombies are dropped into war zones at night to infect the enemy population. To control the spread, the walking dead are engineered to be photosensitive and dissolve with the rising sun. But when one fails to self-destruct in the Middle East, an elite team of soliders must infiltrate hostile territory to stop a growing zombie army.
Benderspink also has set up Y: The Last Man and Drafted at New Line, Pencilneck at Lionsgate and Pet Robots at Disney.
