I’d rather die while I’m living than live while I’m dead. Cannes Film Festival is about to get an influx of the undead, Jim Jarmusch style.
The director’s genre defying thriller-meets-romcom, The Dead Don’t Die, sees Bill Murray, Adam Driver and Chloë Sevigny working as a law enforcement trio, who discover that their small town has, well, a zombie problem. Cue ample star-studded cameos from the likes of Iggy Pop, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi, Selena Gomez, Danny Glover, Rosie Perez, RZA, Austin Butler, Luka Sabbat and Tom Waits. It’s no wonder this film is billed as the greatest zombie cast every assembled.
Jim Jarmusch (Coffee and Cigarrettes, Only Lovers Left Alive) will open Cannes Film Festival with The Dead Don’t Die on May 14, with the film also nominated for the prestigious Camera d’Or prix.
