In the upcoming TIFF selection My Awkward Sexual Adventure, Canadian actress Emily Hampshire plays an exotic dancer who helps a reserved accountant gain sexual experience in order to win back his ex-girlfriend. But the Cosmopolis star will soon take on a very different role in the Filmax feature horror film The Returned.
Directed by Manuel Carballo (Exorcismus), and written by Hatem Khraiche Ruiz-Zorrilla, The Returned is a futuristic zombie movie in which undead victims are temporarily healed thanks to weekly injections of a serum. Hampshire, who just finished shooting All the Wrong Reasons with Kevin Zegers and Cory Monteith, will play a doctor who works with the victims. The film will also star Kris Holden Reid and Shawn Doyle. [Variety]
Production on The Returned will begin sometime this fall.
Does the premise of The Returned sound interesting? Do you think zombie movies are still relevant or have they become stale?
