Fans who can’t get enough of The Walking Dead’s Glenn Rhee will love Steven Yeun in the new indie action movie Mayhem alongside actress Samara Weaving.

Viewers of AMC’s hit zombie survival drama have been watching Steven Yeun’s character Glenn Rhee live through the apocalypse since the first season of The Walking Dead, but now fans can check him out in an upcoming indie action thriller.

According to an article on The Hollywood Reporter’s website, Yeun has been cast in the movie Mayhem, which is directed by Joe Lynch. Yeun will join Australian actress Samara Weaving (Home and Away, Ash vs Evil Dead) in the film to help tell the story of a “virus capable of making people act out their wildest impulses that infects a corporate law office” which can result in awkward, amazing, and horrible results that should keep viewers on the edge of their seats during the movie.

Director Joe Lynch is very excited about working with Steven Yeun on the project and thinks the upcoming film will be a great time for moviegoers.

"“It’s not every day you get to throw action, sci-fi, horror, drama and even satire in the genre blender and hit puree, but Matias’ script, combined with a gung-ho cast and crew — especially Steven and Samara — will make for a deliciously dangerous and exciting cinematic smoothie … with a hell of a kick.”"

Steven Yeun will play the role of Derek Saunders, an individual who is framed by one of his co-workers at the law office where he works on the day that the strange virus hits. Produced by Circle of Confusion, the film may have even more of The Walking Dead‘s feel, since they are the production banner behind the series and will produce along with Royal Viking Entertainment’s Sean Sorensen.
