A Script for ‘Dead Snow 2’ is Finished and Ready to Go

Some of you may recognize the name Tommy Wirkola as the director is about to make his American film debut with Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. What put his name on the map, however, was a little indy film called Dead Snow, the gory Nazi zombie genre flick.

For those of you who like a bit of B-movie greatness, check out Dead Snow because Wirkola really channeled his inner Sam Raimi for it. When the film was going through its press rounds here in the States, Wirkola expressed much interest in returning to the ridiculous world of Dead Snow. Wirkola recently spoke with Shocktillyoudrop, saying that not only does he have a script, but they plan to shoot the film next winter. Here’s what he had to say:

“I really want to do a sequel to Dead Snow and we have a script for it,” Wirkola said. “I truly love it and I think it’s better than the first film, but it’s going to take a lot more money to pull off. So, we’re going to go [into production] next winter, not this winter. The first Dead Snow was split in two. The first half is a classical horror movie, the second half goes nuts. With Dead Snow 2, it starts right where the first film left off and is full throttle from beginning to end. Basically, the Nazi zombies decide to invade Northern Norway again, it’s just crazy.”

I really like the idea of a second installment of Dead Snow. It’s a fun B-movie that doesn’t take itself too seriously and with its low budget, cheap gore and indy charm, it really makes for an entertaining genre film.
