New Zombie Horror: 'Fragile'   

October 4, 2007 Variety reports that Eduardo Rodriguez is directing 'Fragile,' a zombie horror film based on a graphic novel. No doubt this is happening following the box office success of "Resident Evil: Extinction."

Based on the graphic novel by Stephano Raffaele, story kicks off after an airborne virus has reduced much of the Earth's population to feral zombies. A recently undead soldier then teams with a female zombie and a human teenager, racing against time to find a cure before being hunted down by the soldier's former military unit.

Jeff Dixon adapted the screenplay of the Humanoids-published graphic novel as a spec.

Rodriguez told the trade pub: "'Fragile' gives me the opportunity to explore the horror we're used to in the genre but set in a unique post-apocalyptic world where zombies aren't the monsters anymore."
