'Navy SEALS vs. Zombies'

“Navy SEALs vs. Zombies,” an independent action-horror flick shot in Baton Rouge and starring former LSU track star Lolo Jones, has a release date.

The Louisiana-heavy movie, directed by race car driver Stanton Barrett, is set to come out on Digital HD on Sept. 25 and on DVD and On Demand on Oct. 6, per a news release from the film’s publicist.

As The Advocate reported earlier this year, the movie took over the State Capitol for several days, filming in the governor’s office and the House and Senate chambers.

Details were being held tight at the time, but now more information about the plot has been revealed. Synopsis from the news release: “After losing all contact with the Vice President during a routine campaign stop in Louisiana, the U.S. Government sends in a team of Navy SEALs for the rescue. Dropped into a warzone, the SEALs quickly discover that they aren’t dealing with a normal enemy. The city is under siege by hordes of fast-moving, flesh- eating undead. The infection is spreading and urban warfare has been unleashed. With no cure in sight and time running out, the elite unit has to survive their most horrific mission.”

In addition to Jones, the movie’s cast includes former NBA player Rick Fox, Michael Dudikoff, Molly Hagan, Ed Quinn and actual Navy SEALs.

The $1.2 million film has applied for state tax credits, under Louisiana’s film incentives program.
