In lieu of anything related to this awful story, please accept this happy kitten.
Zack Snyder has been planning a return to the zombie genre after Dawn of the Dead with a movie he’s producing based on his own original concept, called Army of the Dead. Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. (The Thing prequel) is set to direct the movie, which has been put on hold since 2008. He gave an interview to io9 about the film, which is set in a zombie-overrun, quarantined Las Vegas where a father attempts to break his young daughter out. Wait, a daughter needs saving? Somebody call Liam Neeson immediately.
In the interview, van Heijningen says they’re going to be fast zombies and he also dropped this gem:
There’s an extra dimension to this zombie film, because they…. they…. I’m still wondering if I should tell this…. the male zombies rape human females. Yes. And they have human hybrid zombie offsprings. It’s a new take on the zombie genre, which is crazy. [io9]
Uh . . . guys? Don’t zombies have no heartbeat, therefore no blood flow, therefore no ability to get an erection? Same deal with vampires: no blood flow (suck on that, Twilight fans). Yes, I am willing to suspend disbelief on the existence of zombies but not on the zombie boner detail. By the way, “zombie boner detail” is the worst job an artist can have at the pornographic zombie comics publisher (you know one probably exists somewhere).
Anyway, if Zack Snyder is going to keep throwing rape or implied rape into movies he directs or produces, we demand Man Of Steel includes some Lois Lane on Faora Hu-Ul pegging action.
