Wirkola Plans Dead Snow Sequel
On the heels of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, director Tommy Wirkola is plotting a return to Norway for a sequel to his 2009 zombie comedy Dead Snow.
ScreenDaily reports the new film, titled Dead Snow: War of the Dead, will follow the lone survivor of a Nazi zombie attack who must battle an even larger army of the undead with the assistance of the Zombie Squad, a group of professional zombie killers from the United States. The sequel will be released in Norwegian and in English.
“I am delighted to step back into the world of Nazi zombies yet again with Dead Snow: War Of The Dead, a world that is very close to my heart,” Wirkola said. “Ever since we premiered Dead Snow at Sundance 2009, I’ve been getting questions on a sequel, and now, after Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters has been released, the time is finally right.”
