1980s action hero Chuck Norris, 1990s rapper Vanilla Ice and Australian singer-turned-actress Sophie Monk who broke through in the 2000s with the band Bardot, have been revealed as the stars of the action-comedy “Zombie Plane”.
The project is being backed by Studio Dome’s Entertainment Squad and Aussie producer/distributor Radioactive.
The story centers on a secret government organization that recruits celebrities to be undercover agents, who together must save humanity from an imminent zombie attack.
All three play versions of themselves with Norris as the ‘Commander’ who mentored and trained stars into becoming deadly secret agents – including Vanilla Ice.
A bunch of celebrity cameos are included along with a 1990s pop soundtrack with some tracks by Ice himself. Lav Bodnaruk and Michael Pier direct the film which was shot earlier this year in Australia.
Producer Jessica Butland says: “Audiences can expect a wild ride. Vanilla Ice is in his element as secret agent and Chuck Norris having trained him is excellent and it just works.”
Studio Dome will launch international sales at the upcoming American Film Market in November.
