Fede Álvarez will return to the world of horror in the near future with zombie thriller 16 States.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, John Requa and Glenn Ficarra’s script for the new zombie film ignited a small bidding war with Lionsgate emerging victorious.
16 States will contain a timely focus,”…a pandemic, this time with zombies, with a story of a mother trying to reach her family at the center of it. The project has been described as having shades of the Will Smith zombie movie I Am Legend.”
Roy Lee and Miri Yoon of Vertigo Entertainment will produce the new film, along with Requa, Ficarra and Charlie Gogolak for Zaftig Films. Álvarez, Shintaro Shimosawa and Rodolfo Sayagues of Bad Hombre are also producers.
