"This is the kind of movie that we always want to part of, something that punches way above its weight," said Resolution Independent's Pete Ford. "This isn't just a zombie movie, it's an action adventure movie that has extraordinary scale and scope that has the added bonus of zombies!"

Executive Producer Wayne Duband, , added: "It's exciting to see a genre film of this calibre with such huge global appeal come out of an important market like Russia from a upcoming talent like Nik, I'm thrilled to partner with Pete and RI to represent the film worldwide"

Pigarev will be on hand to present the film at the 26th Leeds International Film Festival, running November 1-18, 2012.

Meteletsa: Winter of the Dead will premiere in the festival's Fanomenon section showcasing new horror, sci-fi, and fantasy films from around the world.
