MAYHEM has cast The Walking Dead‘s Steven Yeun and Samara Weaving in lead roles. Joe Lynch is directing the action thriller which will begin principal photography later this month in Belgrade, Serbia.
The script from Matias Caruso tells the story of a virus that infects a corporate law office on the day attorney Derek Saunders (Yeun) is framed by a co-worker and wrongfully fired. The infection is capable of making people act out their wildest impulses. Trapped in the quarantined building, our hero is forced to savagely fight tooth and nail for not only his job but his life
Circle of Confusion’s Lawrence Mattis and Matt Smith are producing with Royal Viking Entertainment’s Sean Sorensen and Avva Pictures’ Mehrdad Elie. Avva will finance the film with president of production Parisa Caviani executive producing.
Yeun is best know for his role as Glen on The Walking Dead and more recently appeared in I Origins. He is repped by Paradigm and Gotham/Principal.
