‘Cosmopolis’ Actress Emily Hampshire To Don Lab Coat For Zombie Thriller ‘The Returned’

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?
