Actor Eric Balfour has announced that he is directing the upcoming adaptation Jesus Hates Zombies. The project will mark his full-length feature directorial debut, although he did direct a segment of the movie Do Not Disturb. Here's what Eric Balfour had to say below.
"Good morning/afternoon/evening depending where you are in the world. I said I had some cool news so here it is... I have signed on to direct the feature version of Jesus Hates Zombies based on the graphic novel by @StephenRL (Stephen Lindsay) JesusHatesZombies.com. I'm so excited to be a part of this movie!!! The screenplay is awesome and not what you would expect... More details soon!"
It isn't known who the screenwriter is on the project, although Jesus Hates Zombies is based on the graphic novel series by Stephen Lindsay. The official site already has a few concept art photos featuring Jesus, his sidekick Laz and Eli, which you can take a look at below, along with the synopsis for the graphic novel.
"The zombie plague has swept across the Earth, and Jesus has been sent down to take care of it. Along with Laz, (his loyal zombie sidekick) Jesus must unite the remaining humans to stand up and defeat the zombie menace. A werewolf-slaying Abe Lincoln makes his debut here, fighting in the 19th century while Jesus saves the world in the 21st century. Will these two historical heroes finally cross paths? You'll have to read to find out!"
