Dead Snow and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters director Tommy Wirkola is jumping back on board to direct a sequel to his Nazi zombie movie Dead Snow, which is being called Dead Snow: War of the Dead. I thought the first movie was great, it was a really fun and entertaining flick, and I think it's great Wirkola is coming back to make a sequel.
The sequel will follow "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." Here's what Wirkola told Screen Daily in a statement,
I am delighted to step back into the world of Nazi zombies yet again with Dead Snow: War Of The Dead, a world that is very close to my heart. Ever since we premiered Dead Snow at Sundance 2009, I’ve been getting questions on a sequel, and now, after Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters has been released, the time is finally right. We 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 can’t wait to unleash another horde of undead Nazi zombies onto the world again.
The movie will be released in both English and Norwegian, and I can't wait!
