Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton Battle Zombies in ‘The Dead Don’t Die’ Trailer
Bill Murray,Adam Driver,Tilda Swinton and Chloë Sevigny unite to defend their quirky small town from zombies in the first trailer for The Dead Don’t Die, the upcoming horror-comedy from filmmaker Jim Jarmusch. The clip opens with the zombies unleashing their wrath on a small diner, and the local police — Murray, Driver and Sevigny — arrive on the scene to assess the bloody aftermath. “This is really awful,” Murray says. “Maybe the worst thing I’ve ever seen.” Driver dismisses the theory of a wild animal attack, suggesting a more sinister alternative: “I’m thinking zombies — you know, the undead. Ghouls.”
Eventually, the entire town is aware of the town’s zombie epidemic as corpses start escaping their graves. They are oddly attracted to the activities they enjoyed when they were alive. Tilda Swinton is seen as a fierce sword-wielding morgue assistant while Selena Gomez plays a high school student. Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Rosie Perez, Iggy Pop, Sara Driver, RZA, Carol Kane and Tom Waits are also part of the cast. Produced by Joshua Astrachan and Carter Logan, the film will be distributed worldwide by Focus Features and Universal Pictures International. The Dead Don’t Die is scheduled to release on 14 June.
