‘Juan of the Dead’ Lands at Focus World

Juan of the Dead gets digital distribution through Focus World The Cuban zombie comedy Juan of the Dead has been acquired by Focus World, the new digital distribution arm of Focus Features. The label releases its titles through video on demand and other electronic sell-through platforms such as cable providers, iTunes, Xbox 360, Playstation and YouTube.

It is said this deal allows Juan of the Dead to debut at U.S. film festivals, and it will be released in theaters this April through another unnamed distributor. Juan of the Dead premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and it has already struck distribution deals in foreign territories such as Germany, Russia, Japan, and the U.K.

Alejandro Brugués directed Juan of the Dead from his own original screenplay. The story centers around Juan (Alexis Díaz de Villegas), a 40-year-old slacker who finds his calling during a zombie outbreak, where he makes some fast money by killing the undead members of other people's families.

Juan of the Dead was released March 16th, 2012.
