18th century zombie comedy from director Matthew Butler.
Ian McKellen, Judi Dench, Gillian Anderson, and Mark Williams are all attached to star in ‘The Curse of the Buxom Strumpet’ for director Matthew Butler, reports Screen Daily. The movie will be “an extension” of Butler’s short comedy film ‘E’gad Zombies’ which also starred McKellen.
Set in the year 1713, the story follows the inhabitants of the small seaside town of Upper Trollop who are struck down with a deadly illness. The illness takes hold of the villagers turning them into unfeeling creatures who eat anything they can get their hands on. Lord Fortitude must lead the small band of survivors and escape to France.
The €2.4 million budgeted movie will film in Scotland later this year with a script co-written by Butler and Tori Hart.
