Wesley Snipes is giving up his night job of slaying vampires and moving onto zombies in the upcoming Outbreak Z, THR reports. The film will be directed by stuntman/choreographer Chris Brewster.
"I am so excited to begin the world of Outbreak Z. Wesley is an absolute legend in entertainment and martial arts," Brewster told ComicBook.com. "It is an honor teaming up with him, and joining forces with one of the best in the world. Having him on the team, allows us to create a style of zombie/horror films that has never been seen. This will be an action-packed adventure for everyone. We are breaking all the zombie rules."
"Our zombies will not move or act like anything the audience has seen before," he added.
The story focuses on two SWAT officers on a desperate hunt through an overrun college campus in search of a man who holds a vaccine to a zombie virus. Snipes will play one of the officers.
Hamid Torabpour, Clint Narramore and Andrew Kightlinger wrote the film's script.
Executive producing with Snipes are Hamid and Camille Torabpour as well as Dr. Mark Smith and Patrick Werksma.
