One of the most highly praised zombie films in recent times, Australian hit Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead, is getting a sequel entitled Wyrmwood: Apocalypse which is due for release in the United States sometime in 2022.

The plot is as follow

Rhys, a soldier in a zombie-infested Australian wasteland who has dedicated his life to tracking and capturing survivors for the Surgeon General in hopes of finding a cure. Rhys teams up with a group of super-powered survivors to save a young woman from death by military experimentation.

To get us excited, director Kiah Roache Turner had this to say about the follow up.

If the first one was like Mad Max, the second had to be Mad Max 2: bigger, bolder and genuinely pumping, with zombies, car chases, explosions and a giant cyborg. It’s basically the film we wanted to make in 2014 but didn’t have the money.”

There are plans for a third film, if the sequel proves to be a success.
