Indie writer/director Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die has managed to acquire an impressive cast that includes Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton (who swings a katana and sports an Irish accent), Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Rosie Perez, Iggy Pop, Sara Driver, RZA, Selena Gomez, Carol Kane, Austin Butler, Luka Sabbat and Tom Waits. That’s quite a lot of star power for a deadpan zombie indie comedy.
Based on what we see in the trailer, it seems the film will poke fun at zombie movies and break the fourth wall. Think Shaun of the Dead. Think Life After Beth. Think Zombieland. Think Warm Bodies. And up their hipster quotient by about 1000 percent.
In a small peaceful town, zombies suddenly rise to terrorize the town. Now three bespectacled police officers and a strange Scottish morgue expert must band together to defeat the undead.
The Dead Don’t Die hits theatres on June 14, 2019.
