Writer-director Peter Berg has written a script for a sequel to the 2012 zombie movie “Dead Alive,” and he wants to make it happen.
Berg and his brother, John, have been developing the screenplay since August, but he’s been working on it at a faster pace than he expected.
The story focuses on a group of survivors of a zombie attack who, despite having little choice, decide to make a pact with a supernatural entity to get out of the situation.
Berg’s new script, titled “The Devil and the Man Who Killed Him,” has been described as a sequel of sorts to “The Dead Alive,” but with a new twist.
He tells EW that the story will take place after the events of “The Man Who Knocked Down the Moon.”
“I love the idea of a family of survivors who are in the middle of a horrible time, and the only way to get to the truth is to sacrifice one of them,” Berg says.
“The question is: Will that person survive?”
“I wanted to take the idea that you had to make that decision in the moment, when you’re facing a really dark situation,” he says.
He added, “I was like, ‘Oh, I want to write about the story that has the most potential to happen in this world.
“Dead Dead” has received mixed reviews, but Berg has remained optimistic about the sequel.””
I’m still optimistic,” he said. “
