Douglas Vermeeren makes an incredible shift for his next film

Here on ShowBiz, we feature the most recent, the latest in the ShowBiz world. We also handpick and feature the most interesting and innovative concepts in movie making and interesting films being made as we talk here.

One such most recent and interesting concept that I learn about this morning is about Douglas Vermeeren. On the heels of wrapping his latest personal development film “How Thoughts Become things”,  director/producer Douglas Vermeeren makes a startling announcement! Read on to know more...

If you don't know whom we are featuring today - it is Douglas Vermeeren who became known as one of the foremost directors and producers in the inspirational and personal development genre with his award winning films - The Opus, The Gratitude Experiment and The Treasure Map. I would suggest to read about personal development genre if you don't know what it means.

Talking about more of his films - they have been translated into more than 23 languages and developed into books featured in just as many languages. But the latest news is, as we began this article, this week he threw a curveball when he announced that his next film will not be an inspirational picture.

At first consideration and understanding, one might think that a simple inspiring narrative film might be the next logical step that Vermeeren might make going by his successes, but the reality is far more surprising. Vermeeren declared on a panel discussion at a recent personal development forum that his next film will be a “Zombie picture.” Talk about generating interest and curiosity!

What is meant by the declaration of a zombie picture has yet to be seen as the details given were less than precise. Some of the revealed points include that the film will be titles “Creepy Zombies.” It will be shot both in Vermeeren’s hometown of Calgary, Alberta Canada and Los Angeles, California. The film will go into production for June of this year and have an expected release date of October 2016.

Vermeeren will be writing the script!

When we probed further about why a shift from personal development is in order to Vermeeren directly, he replied that “this was really my first passion. Not specifically Zombie movies. But fantasy, adventure and narrative stories. This is what I went to school for in the beginning.

ShowBiz went a step ahead and asked if his most recent film will be his last venture into the personal development realm to which Vermeeren replied that he had just finished principle photography on his latest personal development film “How Thoughts Become Things.”

Once that is released he will spend more time on non-documentary filmmaking, but the future was unwritten. There may be more personal development films in the future. So, we at ShowBiz along with the readers of ShowBiz can say our excitement is palpable and looking forward to the film already!
