An everyday tale of life, love and the living dead which centers on a group of friends who encounter a literal night from hell at their local pub resulting in a zombie holocaust.
Shaun of the Dead fans have something to look forward to in the new year, with a live stage adaptation of the hit 2004 movie going on tour in 2015. There are currently no plans to bring the stage show to the U.S. as of yet, with the production set to tour in the U.K. Shaun of the Dead star Simon Pegg and director Edgar Wright have given their blessing to the production, which debuted in preview shows back in October before starting the full tour next year. The show is being put on by Almost Legal Productions, which offers the following description in an excerpt from the company's official website."Life is going nowhere for Shaun. He spends his life in his local pub, with his best mate Ed, has issues with his Mum and step-dad and things aren't running too smoothly with his girlfriend Liz. When Liz dumps him, Shaun finally decides to get his life in order. He must win back her heart, repair his relationship with his mum and face up to his responsibilities. Unfortunately, there is a slight problem with the world being taken over by Zombies. For the newly inspired Shaun, this is just another obstacle. In the face of a full scale ZOMBIE EPIDEMIC, armed with a cricket bat and his best mate with a spade, Shaun & Ed go to rescue Liz, her friends, mum and grudgingly his step-dad, and take them to the safest most secure place he knows.
A report from Chortle reveals that the 110-minute Shaun of the Dead stage show will include an audience participation element, with each ticket holder being given a "goody bag" full of props, and they are also encouraged to dress up as zombies or characters from the movie. Almost Legal Productions has also released a trailer and a poster for the Shaun of the Dead stage show, which you can see below, and, if you live in the U.K., you can CLICK HERE for more information and to purchase tickets.Read More

We repoted in August that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost will voice their characters from the 2004 zombie comedy, but little was known about the story at that time. This episode centers on a new device created by Heinz Doofenshmirtz (Dan Povenmire), which accidentally turn everyone in Danville into "Doof-zombies" who run rampant all over town. While traditional zombies have to bite their victims, Doofenshmirtz's machine allows the transformation to be much easier.Read More
