Cuban Zombies in JUAN OF THE DEAD

JUAN OF THE DEAD (aka JUAN DE LOS MUERTOS) centers around Juan, a typical forty-year-old slacker. When Havana begins to fill up with zombies, Juan decides that the best way to cope with it is to prosper. "Juan of the dead kills your loved ones" is his slogan, and his mission is to help people get rid of those infected around them ... for a price. But as the situation gets worse and everyone escapes to sea as a means to get away, Juan is left with no choice but to become a hero, staying to defend his country and protect his own on an island that has turned into a real bloodbath.

Cuba's entry into the bloated zombie-comedy film world, which is co-produced between Mexico and Spain, begins principal photography this September.

Here's the teaser trailer, which sells the zombie-killer-for-a-price motif pretty well.
