West (director of "The Expendables 2") will produce alongside Jib Polhemus ("The Mechanic"), Gus Malliarodakis and Matty Mangone-Miranda.
Written by De Soto, David Reuben Schwartz and Warren Davis, the film is a 'motion capture re-imagining' of director George A. Romero's public domain black and white 1960's horror classic, "Night Of The Living Dead".
Cast of the new film includes Danielle Harris ("Halloween V"), Tom Sizemore ("Saving Private Ryan") and Tony Todd ("Candyman") :
"...New York lies in ruin when zombies have overtaken the city. For the few people left alive there is only one dream – survival. That includes 'Ben' (Todd) and Barbra (Harris), two survivors who find themselves trapped and fighting to escape the hordes of undead that walk the streets..."
Filmed entirely in a CG environment using stereoscopic 3D, the film employs the next generation facial capture technology, created with a new proprietary real-time effects system nicknamed "The Beast", allowing De Soto to shoot CG animations as though he were on a live set.
The film is being produced with the cooperation of The Graphic Film Company in association with Giant Studios ("The Adventures of Tintin", "Avatar").
