Anchor Bay Films has picked up the North American theatrical, home entertainment, digital and VOD rights to Howard J. Ford and Jon Ford’s “The Dead 2: India”.
The project is a follow-up to 2010’s “The Dead” which was the first horror film entirely filmed in Africa. That film saw an American mercenary, the sole survivor of a plane crash in Africa, battling with the living dead.
In the follow-up, a ship from Somalia docks in India and an infected worker enters the overpopulated country. An American engineer (Joseph Millson) has to travel 300 miles across the Rajasthan to save his pregnant love in a Mumbai that is descending into chaos.
Shot entirely in India, the film is targeting a release this fall.
