Zombies at dawn: The director and the star of new film Redcon-1 in conversation on Lie in with Nicola on Chorley FM

Director Chee Cheung on set of Redcon-1

I’m usually a bit of a zombie on Sunday mornings but this week I’ll be chatting to some real experts.

I am delighted to confirm my guests on Sunday’s Lie in with Nicola on Chorley 102.8FM will be writer and filmmaker Chee Keong Cheung and actor, producer and martial arts expert Mark Strange, director and star of new zombie horror film Redcon-1, due for release on September 28.

Both Chee and Mark are Lancastrians, Chee from Lancaster and Mark from Leyland, and the film itself was partially shot in Leyland and Preston.

The footage shot in Leyland saw hundreds of extras dressed up as zombies swarm Moss Side.

Mark’s career has seen him work on two feature films with Jackie Chan in Hong Kong as well as stunt and fight work on Batman Begins and The Last Samurai.

Away from the big screen, he is a fight co-ordinator television on series like Coronation Street.

Redcon-1 tracks eight soldiers sent on a suicide mission after the UK is ‘brought to its knees’ due to a zombie apocalypse born in London.

A special showing will take place at Vue Preston at The Capital Centre retail park in Walton-le-Dale on Tuesday, October 9, where Chee, Mark and the cast will be doing a Q&A with the public.

The film is also being shown with a post-screening Q&A at Vue Bolton at Middlebrook Leisure Park on Saturday, October 6, at Odeon Blackpool on Sunday, October 7 and at Vue Lancaster on Thursday, October 18.
