Production[edit]

Writer/Director Chris Gabriel created First Platoon with the goal of staying true to classic zombie movies, such as the Living Dead films of George A. Romero in a way that traditional fans will revere, while still offering plenty of hilarity and action.[1] Originally slated to shoot in New Mexico, First Platoon will now be filmed on location in Southern Nevada,[1][2] with leading man Scott Gibson playing the role of Rock Brannigan (originally cast as Alan Tudyk[3]). In order to prepare for their roles, actors Scott Gibson,[4] Jennifer Skyler, and Arron Shiver will undergo military style training under the supervision of Capt. Dale Dye USMC (Ret.), who is the military adviser for the film.[5]

Release[edit]

First Platoon is scheduled for release in 2013.[6]
