Wesley Snipes is looking to make a comeback. 

The 56-year-old actor will star in the zombie action thriller Outbreak Z. Snipes will also executive produce the feature from Winter State Entertainment. 

Outbreak Z follows SWAT officers on a desperate search on a college campus overrun by zombies for a man who holds the vaccine to prevent the apocalypse.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, who was first to report the news, Snipes is set to play one of the officers. 

Chris Brewster will direct from a script penned by Hamid Torabpour, Clint Narramore and Andrew Kightlinger. Brewster is a renowned fight choreographer and stunt performer who’s won a SAG Award for best fight choreography for Black Panther.

You can see Snipes next in Netflix’s biographical comedy Dolemite is My Name opposite Eddie Murphy, expected to debut sometime later this year.
