PROPOSED TAGLINE: "When there's no more room in hell, there's no place like home."
INSPIRATIONS: Following my first screening of Land of the Dead, I dreamt I was fighting off zombies with Simon Baker, in my hometown.
MUSICAL INSPIRATIONS: While writing the script, I frequently listened to the Land of the Dead soundtrack, by Reinhold Heil and Johnny Klimek.
In what has become a tradition in most of my scripts, I have a character named "Shannon" within the story. In ME & SIMON BAKER, "Shannon" is Michael's annoying neighbor turned zombie.
Eccentric Michael, obsessed with zombies since a childhood tragedy, must band together with Land of the Dead actor Simon Baker, when an actual zombie epidemic explodes. Together, they must then travel cross-country to find the only person they believe can handle this disaster -- legendary director George A. Romero.
The powerful messages of home, friendship and fantasy in The Wizard of Oz combine with the devastation and zombie horror of George A. Romero's ghoulish films, creating a new vision for the "road trip" movie.
