Eric Balfour Directing Live-Action 'Jesus Hates Zombies'

Texas Chainsaw Massacre/Skyline star Eric Balfour will be taking his talents outside of the acting arena as he'll be directing a live-action adaptation of Stephen Lindsay's Jesus Hates Zombies, writes TATM.

Michael Mongillo and Jason Alan Smith will be writing the screenplay for the Alterna Comics' series that has been one of the best-selling comics on Android since its debut in mid-2009.

"In a not so distant future, zombies have overrun the earth. Fearing for the future of humanity, God sends his son Jesus Christ to save humanity. Upon returning, he finds that his powers are greatly diminished as they are tied to others' faith in him. So he sets out to find the last remaining faithful and rally them to his cause.

Along the way he comes across various friends including Mother Theresa, Elvis Presley, a stripper named King, and a time traveling Abraham Lincoln, who brings his own problem along. Werewolves."
