Adam Driver and Bill Murray to star in a zombie movie together
Not one to shy away from the flesh-eating undead, screen legend Bill Murray will star alongside Adam Driver, Steve Buscemi, Selena Gomez and Tilda Swinton in The Dead Don't Die.
Jim Jarmusch is directing the project. He's worked with several of the attached stars previously, including Driver in 2016's Paterson, Murray in 2005's Broken Flowers (amongst other films) and Swinton in 2013's gloomy vampire tale Only Lovers Left Alive.
Although plot details are scarce, The Dead Don't Die is being described as a "zombie comedy" and is currently in production (via Screen Rant). Jarmusch's artistic flair has seen well-trodden genres offered new leases of life in the past, notably the Western and Samurai narratives, so it'll be fascinating to see what he can do here.
Murray has been known to dabble in the zombie genre during his career, adding a genius cameo appearance to Ruben Fleischer's Zombieland.
Nine years following the film's release, it's also finally been announced that Zombieland 2 is going ahead - with the original cast and crew returning.
Colombia Pictures president Sanford Panitch said in a statement: "This is one of those projects that fans have wanted to see happen for a long time – and no one wanted to see it happen more than Emma, Woody, Jesse, and Abigail.
"These are some of the most in-demand actors and I think they are making this movie because they love these characters. We are thrilled Ruben was willing to come back to direct the sequel, as his work on Venom has been truly amazing."
