This week we get the first look at Ellen Page in post zombie era drama The Third Wave.
The first feature of Irish director David Freyne unfolds in the aftermath of a devastating virus, which transformed the infected into zombie-like monsters.
Mankind is struggling to rebuild societies deeply divided between the uninfected and those who did succumb to the virus and are still haunted by their violent actions.
In the backdrop, the rise of a terrorist movement threatens to plunge the world into chaos again.
On the film, Page explained,
The Third Wave brings an entire new perspective to the zombie genre, which I love. David Freyne truly shifts his lens on society’s role in the apocalyptic world. I’m so grateful for this opportunity to share his thoughtful approach to horror with audiences.”
Freyne wrote the script and will direct. This project marks the Irish director’s feature debut, following a series of successful genre short films.
