My second favorite horror film of 2014 was Jim Jarmusch‘s masterful vampire love story, Only Lovers Left Alive, which boasted astounding performances by both Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston. Next up, the director is taking on the zombie subgenre with The Dead Don’t Die, reports The Film Stage.
Although there’s no official announcement yet, the site notes that the director has been spotted in upstate New York with, get this, Adam Driver (“Girls”, Star Wars), Bill Murray (Zombieland, Ghostbusters), Selena Gomez (Aftershock, Hotel Transylvania), Chloë Sevigny (Zodiac), and Austin Butler (The Intruders)!
The site also notes that Murray, who plays a police officer in the film, let the news slip earlier this year, telling Philly, “I’ve got a good job coming up. Brace yourself: It’s a zombie movie. Jim Jarmusch has written a zombie script that’s so hilarious and it has a cast of great actors: Rosie Perez, Daniel Craig. It’s titled The Dead Don’t Die, and it shoots over the summer. But, no, I will not play a zombie.”
The film is currently shooting under the title Kill the Head. Watch for details as they’re revealed.
