Jim Jarmusch‘s The Dead Don’t Die is being described as having “the greatest zombie cast ever disassembled” and man, are they right! Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Iggy Pop, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Selena Gomez, Tom Waits, RZA, Sara Driver, Rosie Perez, and Carol Kane are just some of the cast.
Unlike Zombieland, Murray will not be among the undead. This time, Murray will be playing a police officer along with Driver and Sevigny.
Sevigny had this to say about the film recently:
His vampire picture was more dramatic and romantic. The Dead Don’t Die is more in the vain of a comedy. It’s Adam Driver and Bill Murray and myself, and a whole cast of characters. He refuses to say that it’s social commentary, but zombie pictures often are, and it’s pretty easy to ascertain what he would be speaking on. There’s an environmental catastrophe that sets this thing off.”
Jarmusch is the same director that was behind Dead Man starring Johnny Depp, 2005’s Broken Flowers, and Paterson. He has also had an impressive acting career and appeared in films such as Sling Blade and Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai which he also wrote and directed.
Joshua Astrachan and Carter Logan are producing. This is the third film that Jarmusch has made with Focus Features, who will distribute along with Universal Pictures, Deadline reports.
The Dead Don’t Die will come alive in theaters on June 14th.
