Zombie Comedy From First Earth Films Signs Malcolm McDowell , Sid Haig

Las Vegas writer/director Chris Gabriel will be shooting his original screenplay "First Platoon" in New Mexico this spring and summer with Malcolm McDowell and Sid Haig.

 
PRLog - Apr. 1, 2010 - LAS VEGAS -- First Earth Films and Laughing Jack Entertainment, both of Las Vegas NV, team up this summer to produce “First Platoon”, a post apocalyptic zombie comedy written and directed by Chris Gabriel, and starring Malcolm McDowell, Sid Haig, Arron Shiver (3:10 to Yuma, The Book of Eli, The Men Who Stare at Goats), newcomer Jennifer Skyler  and John Kassir (Reefer Madness – The Musical, Race to Witch Mountain).

Featuring an original screenplay by Gabriel and the comedic talents of McDowell, Haig, Shiver and Skyler, “First Platoon” is an homage to a genre virtually created by George Romero, and stays true to the classic zombie lore that diehard fans revere, while offering a fast moving adventure with plenty of hilarity.

Chris Gabriel has previously teamed up with First Earth Films on “S4”, an ultra low budget 1950’s style sci-fi comedy, and will also direct “Raggedy Anne”, an action/comedy, in late 2010.

Filming in Albuquerque New Mexico this spring and summer, “First Platoon” is slated for release in December 2010.
