Jake Cannavale (Nurse Jackie), Angelique Rivera (American Crime), and Sarah Yarkin (American Horror Story) have been tapped to star in the indie comedy, Eat, Brains, Love, the Rodman Flender-directed film adaptation of Jeff Hart’s zombie road trip novel. In addition, Jim Titus, Patrick Fabian, Ty Headlee, Kristin Daniel, and Kym Jackson round out the cast.
The pic follows zombie virus-infected high school seniors Jake and Amanda as they run from Cass, a psychic sent by the government to track them down, and search for a cure for their affliction.
The script hails from writing duo Mike Herro and David Strauss. Gunpowder & Sky developed the project with DIGA Studios, an independent production studio founded by former MTV President Tony DiSanto, and Full Fathom Five.
Cannavale is repped by ICM. Rivera is repped by TalentWorks and Primary Wave Entertainment. Yarkin is repped by Grandview. Herro and Strauss are with Kaplan Stahler Agency.
