Dame Judi Dench is being lined up to appear in a costume drama zombie film with Sir Ian McKellen and Gillian Anderson.

The Curse Of The Buxom Strumpet is an extension of a 20-minute short film, E'gad Zombies, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year.

Dame Judi, who won an Oscar in 1998 for her performance as Queen Elizabeth I in Shakespeare In Love, is set to play a character called Mrs Halfpint, with Gillian in the lead role.

Sir Ian, who starred in the original short, is in New Zealand filming The Hobbit and has already filmed his scenes for the undead romp set in a fictional 18th century seaside town called Upper Trollop.
