I’m hoping The Dead Don’t Die isn’t an April Fool’s joke as it’s an absolute hoot (or maybe a werewolf-y howl). And if it is someone had better make this into a full length movie by June 14th.
If not I’ll just have to watch sheriff Adam Driver saying “Ghouls!” over and over (and over and over).
Or mortician make-up artist Tilda Swinton accusing two awakening bodies she’s been working on “are you in this together?” in a Scottish accent.
Set in the peaceful town of Centerville, the dead begin to rise from their graves and gravitate to what they used to do and where they used to go. Coffee. Tennis. Chardonnay. And if you’re from over here, Greggs.
So if you see someone grey-faced with scary make-up hunched over a keyboard that’ll be me. (Me now. Post-zombie apocalypse I’ll look even worse because my hair’ll be shit too, and my fingers will fall off if I type too hard.)
The zombie comedy was written and directed by Jim Jarmusch and stars (wait for it): Adam Driver, Bill Murray, Selena Gomez, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Iggy Pop, RZA, Tom Waits, Danny Glover, and Carol Kane.
The Dead Don’t Die comes out on 14 June 2019.
