RIVERTON Zombies will be invading southeast Kansas this spring and summer.
They'll be in the Riverton area for a low-budget zombie apocalypse movie called "Zompocalypso."
Eric B. Anderson and his wife, Amelia Dellos, who own Chicago-based Corn Bred Films, are making the movie.
Anderson, a native of Parsons, says he wants to highlight locations and actors in the Midwest. He says he hopes to use the family homestead outside of Riverton for the movie.
The Joplin Globe reports the movie revolves around two brothers. One is a free spirit and the other believes that zombies will cause the end of the world supposedly predicted by the Mayan calendar.
Anderson said he's hoping to release the movie to be screened at independent movie houses by the end of the year.
