George Stroumboulopoulos to star in zombie movie, TIFF film count at two
In the battle of the CBC it boys, George Stroumboulopoulos is out-buzzing Jian Ghomeshi with his acting roles. While Ghomeshi recently made a brief appearance on the reality series The City, Strombo has a cameo in Score: A Hockey Musical, the TIFF opening-night film. The film festival is getting even more George now that George A. Romero’s next zombie flick, Survival of the Dead—in which Stroumboulopoulos plays *drum roll* a TV host—will have its North American premiere at the fest. The movie’s premise: a war-weary band of soldiers take refuge in Earth’s last paradise, only to be confronted by flesh-eating zombies. The film will have an exclusive one-week run at the Toronto Underground Theatre on Spadina Avenue before TIFF starting August 20.
