There are some short films that stay with you. 2013 horror-drama Cargo, directed by Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke, was one of them. The story of a father who uses his last moments before turning into a zombie was a heart-breaking one. It’s only natural that this creative and intense drama would evolve into a feature length film.
With Martin Freeman in the lead, the film follows the same narrative, and is set in the same location Australia as Freeman’s character traipses through the outback looking for a cure and the save his infant daughter.
This looks to be a great development from the short with one of our greatest actors at the forefront. What do you think?
Cargo is out on Netflix 18th May!
