Good Old American Violence! Watch as Pro Wrestlers fight for their lives against waves of undead zombies. Help make this a reality!

LIKE BUTTON IS NICE, BUT SHOW US THE MONEY! LOL

We love the support for the idea but we need the financial support to make the film.   We have worked for a year on this film to get it ready.  We only need a little more money and support for it to happen.  BUT if we don't get financial support, all the likes will not matter.  We have had an overwhelming response on the like's, BUT we need your financial support. We have more likes then money and we need financial supporters for this film to get made.  We love that you like the film, but we need you to give something, anything to get this film made.  If just the people how liked the film would have pledged $25 for the DVD, then we would be close to our goal.  We need your support and we are behind on the pace to achieve our goal.

"The Greatest Movie Idea ever"-The Dead Walk Again website

http://thedeadwalkagain.com/2011/09/28/zombie-news-for-the-week-of-september-28th/

Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies is a labor of love and our effort to bring to the fans what they really want: Good Old American Violence.

This is an idea that fans instantly understand but big Hollywood executives don't.  We know because we are fans ourselves.  If you are tired of boring films trying to teach rather than entertain you, then this film is for you. 

We will bring you big powerful men and hot women slaughtering waves of zombies! WHO DOESN'T LOVE THAT?

As the Zombie Post said; "ITS ABOUT FRIGGIN TIME"http://zombiepost.com/brains/?p=946

How to help!  (We need your money)

Please hit the GREEN button to support the project.  Likes are nice, but we need to raise money for this movie to happen.  Please give whatever you can as soon as you can. 

Our original investor for development funds pulled out.  The result is that this film might not get made in spite of fan support.  That is when Shane "The Franchise" Douglas said:

"Let's take it to the fans"

That is why we are here.  We need your help to make this film and we want you to be a part of it.  Shane told us, that since the film was being made for the fans, why not ask for their help.  He was right!

The film so far

The script, locations and film are ready to go.  Major cast members have signed letters of intent including:

  • Shane "The Franchise" Douglas
  • Terry Funk, the king of hardcore wrestling
  • Larry "The Living Legend" Zybsko
  • Taya Parker, 2009 Penthouse Pet of the year and winner of season 3 Bus of Love
  • Raven (Scott Levy)

Others that have expressed interest include:

  • Rowdy Roddy Piper
  • Richard Pryor Jr.

We would film in West Virginia in Summer of 2012.  West Virginia has a variety of locations that are perfect for this film.   Moundsville, WV,  with it's famous prison and Adena mound are on our location list.  Picture a fight against the undead on a mound of actual dead bodies.

What we would use the money for!

We need your help for funding to secure the cast and pay the legal fees associated with selling the film rights overseas.   These overseas rights would secure the remaining funds to pay for filming.  We are working with a team of experienced producers in Pittsburgh that have helped transform Pittsburgh's film industry.  Every dollar will be used as part of the film budget.

We want to hear from you

If you have questions and or suggestions, we would love to hear from you.  Contact us at cody4us@yahoo.com and we will be glad to talk to you.

Another consideration

Pro Wrestling is a hard life and most Professional Wrestlers never see the fruits of their labor..  This film is a colloborative effort with the Wrestlers.   Everyone involved, from fans to the cast and crew, will truly benefit from this production.  We want to give back to the sport that we grew up watching and loving. This film is our chance to do it!

Video game too!

We plan on making a companion video game, but we cannot move forward  without your help.  We will come back to kickstarter once the film is  the completed. 

Fans like you!

Our crew on this film are fans like you. We have put a year of our lives into this project to get it to this point.  We are just average people with a dream and a great idea that needs your help.

  • Matthew Deering-Zombie fan, Graduate of The Factory film school
  • Joe Russian-Zombie Fan, Graduate of the Factory film school
  • Vince Ruffalo-Zombie fan,
  • Camera Bartolotta-Actress/Producer with 30 years of experience in the entertainment industry.
  • Cody Knotts-sold his business to focus full time on this project
  • Shane Douglas-Wrestling legend and big zombie fan

It's now or never

If we don't get over this hurdle, our idea might die.  We need your help while the cast is able to film this summer.  It's up to you.  We want you to be a part of it.  Then you can always say that you were a part of creating a cult classic!

Be Part of it or be Eaten!

Have you ever dreamed of being part of a big action movie?  This is your chance to be part of the history of zombie lore.  Years later, would you really want to say that you passed up the chance to be killed on screen by legends of professional wrestling.  You can be part of a legendary fan-supported film and you will be able to brag to all of your friends that you were part of this great cult classic.

FAQ

Can I Gift An Incentive?YES! Spectacular idea. If you would like to donate to the film but give the reward to someone as a gift, go through all the normal process of making a donation in your name. For billing purposes, this action must be in your name. After our deadline, we will send a message to you on Kickstarter. (It will be forwarded to the email address you provided) We will request things like an address from you at that time. Please reply with all the person’s information that is to receive the reward. We will make sure they are the person who receives it.

Can we exceed our goal?

Yes!  That would an amazing problem.  More money means that we can make the film even better for the fans.  We will spend every additional dollar on screen, to make this film.
