EXCLUSIVE: Jordan Rubin will ring in 2019 by returning to the big screen with The Drone, the follow-up to his 2014 cult horror comedy Zombeavers about a weekend lake-cabin outing fantastically undone by undead Castor canadensis. Deadline has the exclusive trailer for The Drone to start your new year off right.
The new pic, which as you will have hoped is directly in Zombeavers loopy flight path, revolves around a drone that has become sentient with the consciousness of a deranged serial killer. It then flies off to terrorize newlyweds Rachel (Alex Essoe) and Chris (John Brotherton), who must fight to stop the insidious device before it destroys them both. Anita Briem, Neil Sandilands, Rex Linn, Simon Rex, Sam Adegoke and Christopher Matthew Cook co-star.
Rubin returns to direct, and he reteamed with his Zombeavers co-scribes Al and Jon Kaplan on the script, which judging by the trailer features plenty of bikini and shower scenes, cops on the toilet and at least a bit of drone foreplay. Rubin also produced with Adam Sidman. Ana Liza Muravina, Maria Zatulovskaya and Igor Tsay are executive producers. Timur Bekmambetovs Bazelevs is the production company.
At Slamdance, which runs January 25-31 in Park City, the pic is being sold by UTA, which reps Rubin,. Red Sea Media and MIRSAND Ltd. are handling foreign.
