Bold new film about dead bodies that come back to life and eat people

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.”

This is all your fault, Will Smith tells son

WILL Smith has branded his son a ‘useless little toad’ after the failure of their science fiction film.

Box office flop After Earth featured the father-son duo ‘teaming up’ as space travellers marooned on a post-apocalyptic planet.

Smith said: “Watching the movie back, I realise it’s pretty great apart from my teenage son.

“There are big emotional scenes where I’m totally nailing it and it’s like he doesn’t even give a shit, he’s drifting off thinking about girls or snack foods.

“Honestly, you put them in a $160 million sci-fi blockbuster and this is how they repay you. Fuck all this ‘cool dad’ shit.

“We’re not friends any more. I don’t even have a son, he’s dead to me now.”

Smith revealed plans to cast Jaden in The Fresh Meat of West Philadelphia, a riches-to-rags sitcom about a boy sent to live with his pimp uncle and crack whore aunt.

He said: “Jaden’s life gets ‘flipped around, turned upside down’ and not in a good way as he is pursued by junkies and forced to live on bits of stale bread he steals from pigeons.

“Basically he gets exactly what he deserves.”
