Are You Ready For An Eco Zombie Movie?

No, we’re not sure what that means, either, but that’s how they’re describing Barry ( Rain Man , Sphere ) Levinson’s latest movie

Levinson has been working on the project a while now under the name Isopod (huh?*) but little was know about it. Now, according to Production Weekly , it’s had a name change to The Bay (meh!) and, according to Screen Daily , it will have a trendy mockumentary look, “told via a series of recordings on camera phones, 911 calls and other scraps of video as the town of Claridge, Maryland, is engulfed by chaos.” A zombie Cloverfield , then?

Paranormal Activity ’s Oren Peli, Jason Blum and Steven Schneider along with Skyline and Insidious ’s Brian Kavanaugh Jones are acting as producers.

* Isopods, in case you were wondering, are peracarid crustaceans**, including such bugs as woodlice – creepy crawlers, then, not zombies. So, erm… huh?

** And anybody who doesn't think we used Wikipedia to look that up – aw, bless.
