Veteran filmmaker Jim Jarmusch is back to the supernatural. After diving into the blue-collar American artistry with Paterson (2016), the filmmaker is back to exploring more horror-inspired material, ever since he last did so with the Vampire-romance that is Only Lovers Left Alive (2013).
The Dead Don’t Die, a Zombie comedy starring an excellent cast of Broken Flowers star Bill Murray and Paterson star Adam Driver, as well as Chloe Sevigny, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi and Selena Gomez, will be produced by Focus Features, which helped the 65-year-old auteur with some of his previous projects, like The Limits of Control (2009) and Broken Flowers (2015).
Deadline reports that production is underway. Universal Pictures International will be distributing along with FF.
Little is currently known about the project, but deducing from Jarmusch’s past work, it would be safe to say that this won’t be your typical zombie comedy, but something a little more arthouse experimental than what fans are used to from the genre.
