John Davis' The Animation Picture Company has picked up E.L. Katz's original script Zombie Pet Shop and plans to develop the script as a 3D animated feature film, reports Variety.

Zombie Pet Shop concerns a mysterious plague that sweeps through a mall pet shop, turning all of the animals into zombies. An ordinary pug named Joey must come to the rescue to find the antidote that will save his four-legged friends, as well as the humans that might take them home.

Zombie Pet Shop marks E.L. Katz's first foray into animation, as the scribe is best known for his genre fare.
