Shaun Robert Smith's new Nazi zombie flick, The 4th Reich, is moving full speed ahead. Today, Dread Central brings us some exciting casting news--although maybe not quite as exciting as the last announcement involving Doug Bradley playing an SS officer.

Jason Flemyng has been officially cast in the role of Corporal Callow. The actor may not be a household name, but his body of work is impressive and includes appearances in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Mirrors, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons. He joins a cast that includes the aforementioned Bradley, Tom Savini, Sean Pertwee, and Axelle Carolyn.

The film's tale finds the soldiers of a small brigade of the 3rd Infantry Division fighting through the French countryside. Events get stranger with each step of their journey--and eventually they wind up at an abandoned research facility. There, they encounter some of Dr. Joseph Mengele's experimental army of invincible super soldiers.

I was cautiously optimistic about this project when it was first announced, but I'm getting more interested with each bit of casting news. If nothing else, Smith is lining up an impressive cast. If he delivers a compelling story and gory Nazi action, we could be witnessing the birth of a cult classic.
