Here’s some interesting news that involves Mark Dacascos’ new zombie thriller The Driver which hits DVD next week. Apparently it’s one of a trilogy of stories that takes place in the same shared universe where a zombie apocalypse has ravaged the Earth. This entry, titled Dead Earth, has two women trying to survive in the same world that Dacascos’ ex-Hitman also exists. The film hits DVD and VOD this January so check out the DVD cover art below!
From action filmmaker Wych Kaosayananda, director of Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever and The Driver, comes the action-thriller Dead Earth, arriving on DVD, Digital, and On Demand January 28 from Lionsgate. Dead Earth is a must-own film for fans of The Driver (as this film tells a parallel story) focusing on events that happen within the same post-apocalyptic world, with characters and locations intersecting between both films. The Dead Earth DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.98.
OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS In this searing post-apocalyptic action thriller, two young women cling to life in an abandoned resort. They must survive in silence, in mortal fear of attracting the hordes of undead that roam the Earth. When their compound runs out of fuel, they are forced into the countryside to find gas, resulting in a nightmarish encounter with survivors. But that is nothing compared to the horrors that await them back at home, leading to a deadly confrontation with the evil that surrounds them.
The third film which is titled The Rider isn’t in production yet but it stars a surprise action star that made a cameo at the end of The Driver. No spoilers here but I’m intrigued to see that one as well when it finally hits.
While we wait, check out the trailer for Dead Earth below courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment!
