The Next Chapter

Zombie Town, directed by Peter Lepeniotis and starring Dan Aykroyd, will premiere on Hulu US in 2023.

ZOMBIE TOWN IS AN ACTION HORROR FOR PRETEENS. Referencing the film “Goosebumps” as a guide, Zombie Town will be a fun, action-packed adventure. The zombies of this movie are not as bloody or as brain-eating as “Dawn Of The Dead.” Instead, these zombies are energy suckers, with the ability to multiply by breathing in the life force of their victims and transforming them into zombies. It’s a fresh take allowing homage to adult properties like the “Walking Dead” and “Zombieland”, yet we can subvert it with a healthy dose of magic and non-gore / blood effects. Zombie Town will have family-friendly jump scares, special effects, goofy humor, and a tentative teen romance. It will explore universal themes of “facing your fears” – “maturing into a young adult” and the parables of destiny and consequences.

Trimuse is also working on developing some animation projects with Peter Lepeniotis, including Nut Job 3.

Trimuse currently has a slate of feature films in development including Trauma, Numbers Guy, Blue Angel, and High Diving with prolific, award-winning television director Nick Copus (Lethal Weapon, Gotham, CW’s Green Arrow  & The Flash) slated to direct.
