Cody Knotts' horror-comedy crossing professional wrestling over with the zombie genre "Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies" is slated to be released this March.
The film, starring Roddy Piper, Shane Douglas, Kurt Angle, Matt Hardy, Hacksaw Duggan and more, tells the tale of a group of professional wrestlers who are booked at a private show in an abandoned prison, only to learn they have been trapped inside with a zombie army risen from the dead in an attempt at revenge against one of them.
The film, which closed the First Annual Rocks Off Pro Wrestling Film Festival last year in NYC has received several good reviews, including, Yahoo.com and genre website Giant Freakin' Robot.
The producers of the film are now undertaking a campaign to convince AMC Theaters to run the film Wrestlemania 30 week. They are asking fans to Tweet AMC Theaters at twitter.com/AMCTheatres using #ProWrestlersvsZombies to request that the national theater chain showcase the film. So, if you ever wanted to see Roddy Piper fight off a horde of zombies, here's your chance to make it happen.
