The Obama administration thought they had planned for every contingency when they took out terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden, but they didn’t expect this.

In a low-budget film that could be making its way screens this summer, an undead Osama returns from his watery grave to raise an army of zombie terrorists.

Kynan Griffin, executive producer of “Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead,” told ABC News that the script was “too good to pass up.”

“We’ve just had a lot of fun with it,” Griffin explained. “We had some great special effects makeup people that had done a lot of Hollywood work. Lots of actions, lots of zombie violence.”

According to a synopsis of the film, “The story follows Dusty, a yoga instructor from Colorado, who is on a desperate rescue mission to save her crazy brother Derek, a conspiracy theorist who is convinced Osama Bin Laden is still alive, despite having been buried at sea.”

“In Afghanistan, Dusty falls in with a team of NATO Special Forces on a secret assignment. Turns out Derek is not so crazy after all, and that Osama has returned from his watery grave and is making an army of zombie terrorists. When the group crashes headlong into the growing zombie apocalypse, Dusty and the troops must find and destroy the root of the zombie insurgency before it infests the rest of the world.”

The filming was completed in Utah last November and is being released by Arrowstorm Entertainment.

Filmmakers are also hoping to raise $15,000 through the website Kickstarter. Depending on the level of support, backers could get a signed DVD, have their name listed in IMDB, or even have a film producer fly to their home for a private screening.
