Bionic Woman lead Michelle Ryan will star opposite Harry Treadaway in Cockneys vs. Zombies, a Brit “zom-com” that begins shooting in London on March 21. Ryan and Treadaway play hapless bank robbers who come up against zombie armageddon. Honor Blackman, best known to U.S. viewers from the 1960s cult show The Avengers, also stars. Matthias Hoene is directing from a script by Torchwood writer James Moran. Optimum Releasing, the UK arm of France’s Studio Canal, has already bagged domestic rights. SC Films International is selling the film internationally. I’m hearing that U.S. distributors are circling Harry’s twin Luke Treadaway’s latest completed film You Instead, Scottish director David Mackenzie’s rock festival rom-com that premiered last weekend at SXSW.
