Fragile zombies

Where would Hollywood horror be without graphic novels? 30 DAYS OF NIGHT hits screens soon. We recently heard tell of cinematic adaptations of Baltimore and Virulents. Now we learn that FRAGILE – Stephan Raffaele’s tale of what happens when the Earth is overrun by zombies – is coming to the movies, with Eduardo Rodriguez directing from a screenplay by Jeff Dixon. The story follows a zombie soldier who joins forces with a human teenager and a zombie female, hoping to find a cure before being hunted down by his former military unit.

“‘Fragile’ gives me the opportunity to explore the horror we’re used to in the genre but set in a unique post-apocalyptic world where zombies aren’t the monsters anymore,” said Rodriguez, who helmed Dimension’s “Curandero,” which was written and produced by Robert Rodriguez.
