Colin Firth joins New York Will Eat You Alive to play Kingsman on some zombies
If like me you’ve ever wondered how hard it is Colin Firth would own in the monster apocalypse, the universe is about to answer that question for you. Firth has joined the cast of the upcoming action comedy New York will eat you alive, based on the popular webcomic and anime series Zombie brother.
The adjustment is directed by The last girls and Isn’t it romantic? director Todd Strauss-Schulson. Given the Strauss-Schulson filmography and the utterly glorious title of the film, it’s fair to assume that New York has a living metacomedy element that aids all zombie killings. (Unfortunately, the official press release also notes that New York Will Eat You Alive is only a tentative title, as the genius is often not recognized in its own time.) The film is co-produced by STXfilms, Tencent. Channing Tatum, Reid Carolin, Peter Kiernan‘s Free Association, and Ged Doherty from over the line production. At this point, it’s unclear whether Tatum will also star in the film, but if he does, I’ll immediately buy enough tickets to single-handedly save AMC.
Chairman of the STXfilms Motion Picture Group Adam Fogelson Speaking of Firth’s casting, he said, “We always wanted to cast this in a way that brought the source material to life and increased the action. There is no better way you can accomplish this goal than hiring Colin Firth. From The king’s speech to KingsmanColin always gives an Oscar performance. We are very happy that we will meet with him in New York. Will Eat You Alive in a role that allows him to have fun while showing off his dead humor and weird timing. “
The current script was written by Alex Rubens, Dan Gregor |, and Doug Mand, based on the digital comic Zombie Brother by Jia Haibo. The franchise is one of Tencent’s most popular brands, boasting billions of views on the company’s digital comic and animation platform. Zombie Brother has also been turned into a stage play and I need to find a performance of it right away. Until this video shows up, click here to see our list of the best movies on Amazon Prime.
