Harold and Kumar Director Takes a Bite Out of Corporate Zombies

Illustration for article titled Harold and Kumar Director Takes a Bite Out of Corporate Zombies

When your coworkers stumble into work with a glazed look in their eyes and try to bite your head off before their first cup of coffee, how do you know they’re still your same old coworkers and not brain-chomping zombies? The latest project from Harold and Kumar director Danny Leiner finds a group of office temps stuck at work during a zombie outbreak, and they’ll have to sort out the corporate suits from the flesh-eating undead.The Corporate Zombie Killers is a horror comedy that follows a group of temps who must escape their office park to avoid an eternity as rotting, mindless suits. Movie production company Blowtorch has tapped Leiner to direct, and he’s made no bones about his adoration for the script:

"Once in a lifetime, a script comes along which is beautiful, devastating and life-changing. The Corporate Zombie Killers is none of those, but it is an amazingly hilarious, satirical and action-packed ride in the undying and often overlooked world of corporate zombies."

This sounds like it could fall into the Office Space genre of white collar employee vengeance, except with the added catharsis of bashing in your supervisor’s brains. And, until The Corporate Zombie Killers comes out, I’m going to have Jonathan Coulton stuck in my head:
