Chloë Sevigny was interviewed by Collider, the topic of Jim Jarmusch’s next movie, “The Dead Don’t Die,” came into the conversation and, suffice to say, her description of it has us all very excited. The actress revealed that the film would center around an environmental catastrophe that sets off the zombie outbreak and that the film will lean more towards comedy that drama.
These are the first plot details to come out about Jarmusch’s first film since releasing the best film of his career, 2016’s “Paterson.”
Jarmusch doesn't really concern himself with plot, this could be another hangout film akin to all his other work, but the fact that Sevigny specifies the aim at comedy rather drama is interesting. Mind you, don’t expect “Zombieland” either, but this could be an interesting departure for Jarmusch.
Starring Adam Driver, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Caleb Landry Jones, Selena Gomez, Tom Waits, Danny Glover, the film is set to, cross your fingers, premiere at Cannes this coming May.
