While we're all a little tired of zombie movies lately, there's always room for one more if Jim Jarmusch is directing it. Focus Features announced that the director of Only Lovers Alive has begun production of a new project called The Dead Don't Die, which will feature actors from Jim's previous films.|
The zombie comedy will reunite under the wing of Jarmusch Adam Driver ("Paterson"), Bill Murray ("Broken Flowers"), Chloe Sevigny ("Broken Flowers"), Tilda Swinton ("Only Lovers Alive") and Steve Buscemi ("Mystery Train" ).
A newcomer, Selena Gomez (Monte Carlo), will also appear in this cheerful company. According to some reports, Daniel Craig ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo") and Rosie Perez ("24 Hours in a Woman's Life") will also be involved in the shooting, but their names were not mentioned in the official press release from Focus Features.
There is no information about the plot yet, but, given that this is a Jarmusch film, the synopsis can be rather laconic. However, fans of the director will still wait for any news, because it was Jim who gave us such films as "Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai", "Outlaw", "Stranger than Paradise", as well as the cult movie "Coffee and Cigarettes ", The film-parable" The Limit of Control "and the soulful" Paterson ".
What the director plans to do with the zombie genre remains a mystery, but considering what he did with the vampires in Only Lovers Left Alive, he will have to show all his ingenuity, because in addition to high critical ratings, the drama also received a nomination for the Palme d'Or. (Jarmusch himself is a four-time Cannes laureate). In addition, with such a cast, Jim's new film automatically falls into the "must-s" category. The film is expected to be released next year.
