There are fan films, and there are fan films -- filmmakers Ian McFarland & Mike Pecci aim to release the latter with "The Dead Can’t Be Distracted," a movie inspired by and based on Greg Rucka and Marco Checchetto's acclaimed run on Marvel's "Punisher" comic. With a professional background in directing and producing music videos, mini-docs and horror and Grindhouse films, McFarland and Pecci certainly bring some pedigree with them, and in this exclusive first look at the teaser for the film, fans can get a taste of what to expect from the full movie, which the filmmakers plan to release this summer.

Check out the teaser below, along with some promotional art for the film and the official synopsis.
