A NEW Hollywood film imagines what would happen if dead bodies come back to life and started eating the living.
The Brad Pitt-starring World War Z introduces the concept of so-called ‘zombies’, which is a term for dead bodies that rise from the grave to eat people.
Producer Tom Logan said: “What blew me away about the book was the central idea of people who were dead walking around.
“Not only that, they want to eat us. Actually eat us.
“I immediately thought, ‘This is something I need to see in a film!’
“I don’t want to give too much away, but in the film the so-called ‘zombies’ pretty much take over the world. The surviving humans take shelter in bunkers and make-shift hideout, desperately fighting back by shooting the zombies with guns.
“To make it even better, some of the survivors have different agendas and they end up in conflict with each other. Almost like the real enemy isn’t the zombies – it’s human nature.
“I imagine that anyone reading this has already had their mind blown, or has immediately stopped doing whatever they were doing in order to run to a cinema.”
He added: “It would also be a great premise for a TV series or a video game.
“Actually don’t tell anyone I said that, they might steal the idea.”
