Anouk Whissell, Yoann-Karl Whissell and François Simard, the team behind Turbo Kid and Summer of 84, are directing “We Are Zombies,” a comedy based on Jerry Frissen and Guy Davis’ cult comic book series “The Zombies That Ate the World.”

Anouk Whissell, Yoann-Karl Whissell and François Simard started shooting the movie on March 29 across various locations around Montreal, Canada, with a young cast led by Alexander Nachi (“Clash”), Megan Peta Hill (“Riverdale”) and Derek Johns (“Moonfall”).

Kinology, the Paris-based banner whose credits include Leos Carax’s film “Annette,” has secured international sales to the movie and will unveil a promo teaser at Cannes.

Published by Humanoids, “The Zombies That Ate the World” ran in the legendary magazine Métal Hurlant in 2003 and earned praises from horror legends such as George A. Romero, Joe Dante and Tobe Hooper.

Variety reports that We Are Zombies, an adaptation of Jerry Frissen and Guy Davis’ comic book series “The Zombies That Ate the World,” has begun production in Canada.

“It’s disgusting, fun and politically right on target,” Tobe Hooper once said of the comic book series. George A. Romero also raved about the project, calling it “a terrific series!”

“The offbeat comedic plot follows three slackers looking to earn some easy money who must fight an evil mega-corporation to save their kidnapped grand-mother.”

Alexander Nachi (“Clash”), Megan Peta Hill (“Riverdale”) and Derek Johns (“Moonfall”) star.

We Are Zombies is being produced by Christal Film Productions, Full House, a label of Borsalino Productions and Maneki Films, and Humanoids’ European sister company Sparkling, in association with Kinology.

“We Are Zombies” is backed by SODEC, Telefilm Canada, Sofitvcine, La Banque Postale Image, Cofimage, Refundable tax credit for Québec film and television production, Eurimages, Cofinova, as well as the Canadian Film and Video Production Tax Credit.
