From demons to zombies, Jane Levy, who starred in Evil Dead and reteamed with director Fede Alvarez for Sony’s A Man in the Dark, will battle the undead in Office Uprising, Bloody Disgusting can exclusively report. Levy joins previously announced Australian actor Brenton Thwaites (Blue Lagoon: The Awakening, Maleficent, Oculus) in the zombie actioneer directed by Steven C. Miller (Aggression Scale, Under the Bed, Submerged, Marauders) from a script written by Ian Shorr and Peter Gamble.
“Office Uprising is set inside one of the world’s leading arms manufacturers where a substance is slipped into the employees’ drinks by the board of directors that supposedly makes them work more efficiently. Due to a slacker within the company, though, they are fed the wrong formula and start turning into homicidal maniacs — leaving the slacker needing to step up his game to rescue himself and his friends from the growing zombie plague inside the company compound.”
The Exchange is selling Office Uprising at the EFM in Berlin.
“Suburgatory” alum Jane Levy has been cast as one half of the starring couple in CBS’s romantic comedy pilot “My Time/Your Time,” Variety has learned. “How I Met Your Mother’s” Pamela Fryman has also boarded the pilot to direct. “My Time/Your Time” chronicles the relationship of a young couple as they begin dating long distance.
Levy will play Marla, an inherent optimist living in New York City who wants to be a playwright but is having trouble breaking away from a traditional life for the life of an artist. Her on-screen significant other is yet to be cast. Hailing from writer Hilary Winston and “How I Met Your Mother” creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, the potential series is based on the web series “7P/10E” by Avital Ash.
Bays, Thomas and Fryman will all serve as exec producers with Winston, resulting in a “HIMYM” reunion. The pilot is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Sony Pictures Television. Levy, who also starred in the 2013 pic “Evil Dead” and next will be seen alongside Rob Lowe in “Monster Trucks,” is repped by The Burstein Company, Gersh and attorney Robert Offer.
