Boaz Yakin (‘Hostel‘) will produce Zombie Wedding, the latest horror film by Scott Spiegel (‘Evil Dead II‘). The high concept film, based on Marc Selz’s screenplay, centers around a young, horror-loving couple who have a zombie-themed wedding on Halloween — and things become all too real. The happy nuptials start filming later this year.

This movie should not be confused with the previously released ‘Zombie Honeymoon‘.

When asked about the film Boaz had this to say:

“The main reason I’m excited about ZOMBIE WEDDING is the opportunity to work with Scott Spiegel again, who, as well as being a dear friend, is an energetic and talented filmmaker. Scott always brings something exciting and offbeat to the horror genre,” says Yakin, who co-wrote Clint Eastwood’s THE ROOKIE with Spiegel and also produced HOSTEL, HOSTEL: PART II and 2001 MANIACS. In addition, Yakin directed the films SAFE, REMEMBER THE TITANS and FRESH. He also previously collaborated with Spiegel on the story for FROM DUSK TILL DAWN 2: TEXAS BLOOD MONEY and partnered with him and director Eli Roth on the late horror label Raw Nerve.

“Scott has an understanding of horror, humor and visual storytelling that are unique,” says Yakin. “He’s one of the people who helped popularize the genre of off-the-wall anything-goes horror, and I’m dying to see what he comes up with in ZOMBIE WEDDING.”

“Boaz will bring his vast filmic insight to ZOMBIE WEDDING,” says Spiegel. “He is really well versed in every genre and was instrumental in the development of the HOSTEL franchise. From script to casting to production to editing, Boaz’s creativity knows no bounds. I’m proud to have him on board.”

“As creator and co-writer of ZOMBIE WEDDING, it is my pleasure to welcome the multi-talented Boaz Yakin to the ZOMBIE WEDDING team,” adds Selz, the co-writer/director of SATANIC PANIC and THE ROCKVILLE SLAYER. “Boaz’s vast industry knowledge and experience will be a huge addition to our incredible dream team. I look forward to seeing what his producing skills will bring to the table. Scott and Boaz have worked together many times in the past, and I cannot wait to see what this incredible duo will do again with our film.”
