FILM: Zombies of Mass Destruction = Resident Evil Clone?

Kevin Grevioux, the writer and producer of Underworld, is adapting another one of his comics, called ZMDs: Zombies of Mass Destruction.

The clever title plays on the political claim that there are weapons of mass destruction (WMD) hidden somewhere in Iraq, which was never fully corroborated. But in the comic, the weapons are genetically altered zombies designed in a budding government project--photosensitive and set on a self-destruct timer. Dropped into war zones, their mission is to eliminate enemy forces.

The twist is where it veers off into major Resident Evil territory. One of the ZMDs manages to avoid dissolving and must be put down by a team of elite soldiers...smack dab in the center of the Middle East. If they don't succeed, a zombie army will form and become unstoppable.

Will you watch?
