Here’s your chance to get your shamble on zombie-style, and who knows? It may be the start of a career in movies.
Upcoming rom-zom-com Little Monsters will be shooting in Sydney soon, and needs a bunch of zombies – who’ll receive full credit in the flick’s, erm, credits – to do their thing in some scenes.
It’s no cheapie little production, either. The movie stars Lupita Nyong’o (Black Panther) and Josh Gad (Pixels, and the voice that every parent of a yougn girl knows, that of Olaf in Frozen), along with local talent Alexander England (Down Under – how local is that?!). Speaking of Down Under, its writer/director, Abe Forsythe is doing his directorial thing here with a script that he also penned.
As for the story, it follows a bloke named Dave (England) who volunteers to chaperone his nephew’s kindie class excursion after developing a crush on the teacher, Miss Caroline (Nyong’o). Naturally there’s a triangular situation, with the world’s most famous kids show personality, Teddy McGiggle (Gad), also vying for the affections of Miss Caroline. But when a zombie outbreak happens, by necessity they get distracted… Won’t somebody think of the children?!
