A 424 page book – with involvement from the team that made the movie – will tell the story of Shaun Of The Dead, and how it came to be.

Now this is exciting. 2004’s Shaun Of The Dead was and remains an important film in modern British cinema history. Not only did it thrust talents such as Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost into the limelight, the success of the film launched The Cornetto Trilogy, and if that hadn’t happened the film schedulers of ITV2 would have a real challenge on their hands.

Shaun Of The Dead is rightly regarded as a much-loved classic, but its making of was quite the story. Now, Clark Collis has gathered together dozens of people involved in its making for a new book.

Entitled You’ve Got Red On You: How Shaun Of The Dead Was Brought To Life, it’s published by 1984 Publishing in the UK this October. It’s got the backing of Edgar Wright on Twitter too, who’s been hugely positive about the book. The rest of us can read the 424 tome when it goes on sale on October 19th.
