Shudder has picked up U.S., UK/Ireland, and Australia/NZ rights to zombie thriller Blood Quantum from XYZ Films, Deadline reports.
In Blood Quantum, the dead are coming back to life outside the isolated Mi’gmaq reserve of Red Crow, except for its indigenous inhabitants who are immune to the zombie plague. Amid the chaos, a tribal sheriff must protect his son’s pregnant girlfriend, apocalyptic refugees, and reserve riff raff from the hordes of walking white corpses.
Directed and written by Mi’gmaq filmmaker Jeff Barnaby, the film stars Michael Greyeyes ("Fear The Walking Dead"), Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers (On the Farm) and Forrest Goodluck (The Revenant).
Producers are John Christou for Prospector Films and Rob Vroom. Madrona Drive also executive produced the film alongside XYZ.
The film recently wrapped shooting in Montreal, Canada and the Kahnawake Mohawk Territory as well as Barnaby’s hometown of Listuguj, Quebec.
