As much as we all love They Live and Hell Comes to Frogtown, it’s not particularly surprising that Rowdy Roddy Piper hasn’t come close to matching either of these cult classics ever since. What is surprising is that he still has an acting career of sorts, continuing to take on roles in ultra low-budget productions along with the occasional voice acting gig. Fortunately, it looks like his next movie could be the comeback that we’ve all been waiting for. Actually, wait… I just watched the trailer. Nevermind.
Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies finds Piper leading a team of pro wrestlers against a horde of undead creatures summoned to exact revenge on “The Franchise” Shane Douglas. Some of the other familiar faces making appearances include Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Kurt Angle and Matt Hardy. Apparently the wrestlers did all of their own stunts and there is no CG in the movie… so hey, there’s that. Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies is “coming soon to a theatre near you”; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
