Seems like the zombie genre just won't die. And the trend seems to favor funny movies about the flesh-eating undead.

First came Shaun of the Dead, soon we'll have Zombieland, and coming up is Gatekeeper, which has the distinction of featuring Hellboy and Marty McFly's mom together for the first time!

Here's how Variety reported the news:

Circle of Confusion's producing Gatekeeper, a zombie thriller with Matthew O'Leary, Lea Thompson, Judge Reinhold, Ron Perlman and Jana Kramer attached.

Circle of Confusion exec Stephen Emery will produce, with production starting in September.

Isaac Meisenheimer is signed to make his feature directing debut on Gatekeeper. Meisenheimer also penned the script, in which a simple mistake leaves three friends to defend their town from a zombie outbreak.
