Mos Def and Bill Moseley join Night of the Living Dead: Origins

Posted by LiveFor on November 20, 2009

A while back Danielle Harris revealed that she was providing the voice of Barbara in Zebediah de Soto’s CG-animated prequel Night of the Living Dead: Origins, which will fill in the backgrounds of some of the characters from Romero’s zombie classic and also have scenes of zombie carnage.

STYD spoke to Danielle on the set of her new movie, Jim Mickle and Nick Amici’s Stake Land. She told them that she had finished her voice work for Origins and also revealed that Mos Def (16 Blocks, Be Kind Rewind) and Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects) are joining her in the voice cast. While unconfirmed, early word has it that Mos Def will be voicing Ben, while Moseley will be reprising his role as Johnny which he played in Tom Savini’s 1990 Night Of The Living Dead remake. Day Of The Dead’s Joe Pilato is voicing Harry Cooper with Alona Tal playing Helen Cooper.

We won’t be seeing the finished movie for at least two years.

The plan is for Origins to expand on the original film rather then just be a straight forward prequel. A chance to see moments in the undead uprising that were only alluded to, while tapping into the back stories of the main character who have been familiar to us for over 30 decades.
