Rejoice, fans of cockneys, zombies, and British sitcom legend Richard Briers. Shout Factory! announced today that it has acquired distribution rights to the U.K. horror-comedy Cockneys vs. Zombies. The company plans a multi-platform roll out which will include making the film available through video-on-demand, DVD and Blu-ray releases, and distributing the movie to select cinemas. In addition to Briers, Cockneys vs. Zombies stars Honor Blackman (British TV show The Avengers), Alan Ford (Snatch), and onetime Bionic Woman Michelle Ryan.
Shout Factory! is also set to distribute the action-thriller Tower Block, which like Cockneys vs. Zombies was penned by James Moran, whose other credits include Doctor Who, Torchwood, and the 2006 horror film Severance.
