Hammer Tackles Zombies in BONESHAKER Adaptation

The newly resurrected Hammer Films (Let Me In, The Woman in Black) has announced that it has obtained the rights to adapt the steampunk zombie novel Boneshaker into a feature film.

In Cherie Priest's Boneshaker, a mining experiment gone wrong in the early days of the Civil War unleashes a gas that turns all those who breathe it into a form of the living dead. These undead creatures are walled up in a devastated toxic city, but a teenager named Ezekiel and his mother Briar embark on a crusade that takes them to the undead city and into conflict with air pirates and the criminal underworld.

Sounds intriguing to say the least!
