Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg’s Shaun of the Dead is officially a decade old, but the zombie comedy is getting a new lease on life — just not exactly how you’d expect.
Almost Legal productions has put together an officially licensed stage production of the cult hit film, which actually debuted with some limited dates in the U.K. in October. The production house is planning a major expansion in 2015, with dates scheduled all over the U.K. No word on a U.S. tour yet, sadly, but fingers crossed.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Life is going nowhere for Shaun. He spends his life in his local pub, with his best mate Ed, has issues with his Mum and step-dad and things aren’t running too smoothly with his girlfriend Liz. When Liz dumps him, Shaun finally decides to get his life in order. He must win back her heart, repair his relationship with his mum and face up to his responsibilities.
Unfortunately, there is a slight problem with the world being taken over by Zombies. For the newly inspired Shaun, this is just another obstacle. In the face of a full scale ZOMBIE EPIDEMIC, armed with a cricket bat and his best mate with a spade, Shaun & Ed go to rescue Liz, her friends, mum and grudgingly his step-dad, and take them to the safest most secure place he knows.
Check out the official trailer below, showing off several scenes and songs from the early dates of the production in 2014:
