Screen Media has taken world rights to Israeli writer-director Eitan Gafny’s first feature Battle Of The Undead (Cannon Fodder) and will introduce the film to EFM buyers.

The Lebanon-set zombie thriller stars Liron Levo, Yafit Shalev, Roi Miller, Emos Ayeno and Gome Sarig.

The film follows an Israel Defense Forces special ops unit sent into Lebanon to capture a Hezbollah leader only to land themselves in an unexpected conflict with bloodthirsty zombies.

Gafny, Shalev and Tom Goldwasser produced. Screen Media will release the film in spring.

Vice-president of international sales and acquisitions Michael Dwyer negotiated the deal with White Beach Productions on behalf of the filmmakers.
