Just what medieval movies need – Zombies

Amber Entertainment and 2000 AD, a British comic book company, have agreed to develop a feature film based upon the graphic novel Stronghold, which features zombies terrorizing medieval Wales. According to production will begin by next year, and will be directed by Jason Kingsley and adapted to the screen by writer Tom Fickling.

Jason Kingsley, a longtime video game director, hopes that the inclusion of zombies in a medieval setting will give the feature a fresh look and feel.
