<table align="right" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0"><tr><td></td></tr></table>Shaun of the Dead, the Zombie movie by Spaced's Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, is to go into production later this year.
The film, described by Wright as, "Richard Curtis shot through the head by George Romero", will begin filming in May, and promises to be a bloodsoaked extravaganza of epic proportions.
And, if you have ever harboured a desire to lurch, shuffle, gnaw and be shot to bits - this is your chance, because Simon, Edgar, and the rest, are looking for extras from which they can compose their army of the living dead.
Even better, the Best Zombie Actors will be awarded with a loving photographed head explosion. Lovely. It's worth noting, though, that there is no guarantee you'll be paid for your labours. But then again, you're not doing it for the money, are you?

They're looking for a variety of ages - so, not only yourself, but why not print this out and pass it on to friends and family?
But don't send your email off just yet; you need to follow the instructions that follow.
Firstly; the details. Filming starts in May for 9 weeks. There will be auditions and workshops in April. You'll get more details on that if you express an interest.


So:
If you're interested you need to compose an email with your vital statistics, your name, your contact details, including email, address, and phone numbers. You also need to say whether you wear contact lenses. You can include a scanned photo (manageably-sized jpg files). You should email all this to shaunofthedead@hotmail.com and talk@bigtalk.demon.co.uk; you need to send it to both.
If you can't get to a scanner, you should send photos, papercliped, glued, or stapled, to a copy of your original email, to "Shaun of the Dead Production Office, Room T214, Ealing Studios, Ealing Green, London W5 5EP". You shouldn't expect to get any photos sent back.

Remember - there's no guarantee you'll be asked to be a zombie, or come to auditions. You shouldn't pester BigTalk, or anyone else as there will be a large number of enquiries. If you do, you're likely not to get an answer. If they are interested, they'll contact you on the contact details you provide. There's also no guarantee of an acknowledging email but you can be confident they will have received it.
Also - why not mention Spaced Out in your email? It'll be interesting to see how many people respond thanks to this news story. Feel free to forward it to your friends in email, and, indeed, anyone else who may be interested.

Please note The postal address to send details to has changed as of 19:00 on 6/March. If you've sent stuff to the old, Bigtalk address, don't worry - it'll still get there, but if you haven't already sent stuff please use the above address.
