Jim Jarmusch has written a zombie script that's so hilarious and it has a cast of great actors: Rosie Perez, Daniel Craig.
Release date information for The Dead Don't Die has yet to be revealed, though Focus Features and Universal Pictures International are expected to unleash the film around the world in 2019. For instance, this is the fourth Jarmusch movie that Bill Murray has done, following 2003's Coffee and Cigarettes, 2005's Broken Flowers and 2009's The Limits of Control. But that won't be the only familiar element for The Dead Don't Die. Driver starred in Jarmusch's most recent film, "Paterson".
Plot details are now under wraps, though the project is now shooting in upstate NY. Now, the pair is reuniting for what sounds like one irresistable zombie movie - given Murray's celebrated cameo in 2009's Zombieland - the one downer being that Murray will not play a zombie. Brace yourself: "It's a zombie movie", Murray shared with Philly.com.
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. "But, no, I will not play a zombie". With production underway in Fleischmanns (about 40 minutes west of Woodstock and a few hours north of NYC), both Just Jared and Daily Mail photographers have captured the cast on set, and you can find a wealth of set photos at both of those links.
