Jim Jarmusch Assembles Cast for Zombie Comedy ‘The Dead Don’t Die’

Jim Jarmusch has already directed a modern classic about vampires, so why not zombies?

Although there's no official announcement yet, the director has been spotted in upstate NY with Adam Driver, Bill Murray, Selena Gomez, Chloë Sevigny, and Austin Butler filming a new zombie movie. This is writer/director's third collaboration with Focus, with previous projects including Broken Flowers and The Limits of Control.

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".

Jim Jarmusch is now shooting his new zombie comedy The Dead Don't Die for Focus Features, the studio announced in a press release.

Murray is probably the most frequent Jarmusch collaborator, having starred in both Coffee and Cigarettes and in Broken Flowers.

Okay, That Final Fantasy Behemoth Armour Looks Stupidly Cool in Monster Hunter
There's a new set of Palico equipment which makes the creature look just like a Moogle, and Poogies can take on the Behemoth form. Monster Hunter: World is now available for PS4 and Xbox One with the release for PC set for Aug 9.

Murray, of course, was a standout in the 2009 hit film, Zombieland (which has a sequel coming out), playing a fictional version of himself masquerading as a zombie so that the real zombies would leave him alone. It's titled The Dead Don't Die, and it shoots over the summer.

What he plans to do with the zombie genre is a mystery, but given what he did with vampires in Only Lovers Left Alive, it should be inventive and unique based on the acclaim that movie received.

For deep cut cinephiles, The Dead Don't Die will probably ring a bell, as it was also the title of Curtis Harrington's '75 horror-noir period piece that showcased a '30s sailor (George Hamilton) who connects his brother's wrongful execution to a madman's army of zombies.

Production for The Dead Don't Die is now underway in NY, where The Daily Mail spotted Gomez, actor Austin Butler, Driver, and Murray shooting a gruesome, blood-soaked scene. Plus, with this kind of outstanding cast, The Dead Don't Die should be a must-see movie when it gets released (presumably sometime next year). "But, no, I will not play a zombie".

No release date has yet been announced for The Dead Don't Die.
