Jim Jarmusch Zombie Comedy A Go At Focus Features

Jim Jarmusch is experiencing quite the late period run (not that his filmography ever really dipped in terms of idiosyncratic quality). Starring Swinton and Tom Hiddleston, the film focused on two vampires and their estranged romance which spanned across the world and over centuries. Only Lovers Left Alive saw Jarmusch transforming vampire mythos into existential hang out cinema, contemplating the destructive nature of human beings, as well as the meaning of everlasting love. Focus Features has announced the production has begun on the new feature from the Only Lovers Left Alive filmmaker, and that the project, entitled The Dead Don't Die, has lined up a cast of past collaborators. Brace yourself: "It's a zombie movie", Murray said at the time. "Jim Jarmusch has written a zombie script that's so hilarious and it has a cast of great actors ... it shoots over the summer". But that won't be the only familiar element for The Dead Don't Die. "But, no, I will not play a zombie".

Multiple reports cite it as a zombie flick, and it reportedly stars Jarmusch alums Adam Driver and Bill Murray, as well as Selena Gomez, Chloë Sevigny, and Austin Butler, all of whom have all been spotted on set in Fleischmanns, New York. It sort of plays like a tamer Lucio Fulci film, crafted for TV instead of 42nd street. So, this is definitely not a quirky zombie film, and while we won't get the Bill Murray zombie role that everyone wants to see, it's still a zombie movie that resurrects an always-promising director-actor collaboration from the dead.

The Dead Don't Die will likely debut next year, with Zombieland 2 slated to hit theaters in October of 2019 in honor of the original film's 10th anniversary. Stay tuned, and in the meantime, maybe rent Paterson on Prime and zone out with its sublime zen vibe.
