From green light to release, the average film takes two to
three years, but the zombie action feature WAR OF THE DEAD’s production started

they want to get a bigger and better house; they might not need it, but they
want it. It becomes a thing of prestige, who has the biggest house? Who lives
in the better neighborhood? Look, my house is huge, I’m successful! When it
comes to celebrities, it’s even worse. Typically, they try to move into the
