Jim Jarmusch, notable for Coffee and Cigarettes and Stranger Than Paradise, has announced the release of his new film The Dead Don’t Die, which he’s both written and directed.
Not to mention Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Selena Gomez,Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Rosie Perez, Sara Driver, and Carol Kane.
We don’t know heaps about the plot or the ‘crux’ of the film. We know Bill Murray plays a police officer and has called the film “hilarious”.
And Chloë Sevigny said in an interview recently, “His vampire picture was more dramatic and romantic. The Dead Don’t Die is more in the vain of a comedy.
“It’s Adam Driver and Bill Murray and myself, and a whole cast of characters. He refuses to say that it’s social commentary, but zombie pictures often are, and it’s pretty easy to ascertain what he would be speaking on. There’s an environmental catastrophe that sets this thing off.”
Iggy Pop, who’s set to perform at Bluesfest next month, has worked with Jarmusch before, taking on a small role in Dead Man.
The trio, Iggy Pop, Tom Waits, and RZA have all collabed with Jarmusch previously on Coffee and Cigarettes back in 2003.
The film’s out in the United States Friday 14th June via Focus Features but we’re yet to know when we’ll be seeing it in Australia.
