QED International's Bill Block has picked up a pre-emptive pitch for a zombie thriller entitled 19.

Jim Agnew and Sean Keller (Tokarev) are writing the screenplay, which puts a fresh spin on the undead genre. The story is set in a world where everyone becomes a zombie after turning 19 years of age, with the world now ruled by teenagers and children. The studio is also looking to turn this story into a movie trilogy, along with a series of books.

Jeff Chan is attached to direct, making his feature debut after directing two popular Internet shorts based on the Call of Duty video game franchise, which you can view on the filmmaker's official website.

Film 360 and McG's Wonderland Sound and Vision are attached to produce although no production schedule was released.
