Jim Jarmusch, the critically acclaimed screenwriter-director behind a multitude of hugely influential releases across 4 decades including Only Lovers Left Alive (2013) and Paterson (2016), has assembled an A-List cast for his next movie, a “zombie comedy” titled The Dead Don’t Die.
The Dead Don’t Die will see the filmmaker reignite the creative spark with former collaborators Steve Buscemi, Adam Driver, Chloe Sevigny, Tilda Swinton and Bill Murray. Murray worked with Jarmusch on 2005 release Broken Flowers and 2009’s The Limits of Control. Actor-musician Selena Gomez has also joined the cast.

The new Jarmusch project is already in production though story details have yet to be revealed and there is no indication of a release date.
