A new zombie movie about to start filming in Cuba (yes, Cuba) is going to answer the eternal question—what if you need to kill your shambling loved ones but don't have the guts (as it were) to do it yourself?
Juan of the Dead, riffing on Edgar Wright's Shaun of the Dead, is a co-production among Cuba, Spain and Mexico, with a budget of $1.3 million.
Here's the film's synopsis (as translated by quietearth)
Juan is a typical slacker forty years. One day Havana begins to fill with zombies. John decides that the best way to cope with it is to prosper. "John of the dead, killed their loved ones" is his slogan, and its mission is to help people get rid of those infected around them ... for a price. But the situation gets worse, and while everyone is out to sea to get away, John is left with no choice but to become a hero, staying to defend their country and protect their own on an island turned into a real bloodbath.
