Tommy Wirkola’s 2009 Nazi zombie film DEAD SNOW was a very fun film. It was loved by both critics and fans worldwide, and there have always been rumors (or maybe hopes) of a sequel since the ending left itself open for it. Today, director Tommy Wirkola confirmed that he is returning to Norway to do just that.
Wikola, who recently scored another international hit with his HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS generating more than $100 million at the worldwide box office, has confirmed that DEAD SNOW 2: WAR OF THE DEAD is in the works.
DEAD SNOW 2: WAR OF THE DEAD follows the sole survivor of a Nazi zombie attack who battles an even larger army of Zombies with the help of the Zombie Squad, a professional gang of zombie killers from the US.
â€œEver since we premiered Dead Snow at Sundance 2009, Iâ€™ve been getting questions on a sequel, and now, after HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS has been released, the time is finally right.â€
â€œWe have a script that I am super excited about, which is bigger, scarier, funnier, more action-filled and gorier than the previous one, and I canâ€™t wait to unleash another horde of undead Nazi zombies onto the world again.â€
Filming on the sequel to the cult hit is set to begin mid-2013.
