The Dead Don't Die: Jim Jarmusch Zombie Film Stars Bill Murray

Bill Murray Selena Gomez

The cast is led by many past Jarmusch collaborators, including Academy Award nominee Bill Murray (Broken Flowers), Adam Driver (Paterson), Academy-Award nominee Chloë Sevigny (Broken Flowers), Academy Award victor Tilda Swinton (Only Lovers Left Alive), Steve Buscemi (Mystery Train), as well as Selena Gomez (Monte Carlo) in her first Jarmusch feature.

In 2013, Jarmusch delivered audiences the vampire film Only Lovers Left Alive, which featured plenty of horrific elements but focused on romantic themes and urban decay over frights.

Jim Jarmusch has already directed a modern classic about vampires, so why not zombies? However, it's probably a good time for me to get back on the Jarmusch train. As for Jarmusch's potential inspiration for his latest film, he recently said he was thinking about having "a '70s zombie movie" as the film Driver and Golshifteh Farahani's characters go to in Paterson, before settling on Island of Lost Souls. This is writer/director's third collaboration with Focus, with previous projects including Broken Flowers and The Limits of Control. Murray also teased that Daniel Craig and Rosie Perez were in the movie, and that he would not be playing a zombie (sorry, Zombieland fans).

Tour de France Stage 7: Dylan Groenewegen outsprints Fernando Gaviria
The 2018 Tour de France turned east with a soporific stage, so lacking in action that it would have been welcomed by insomniacs. A group of around 40 riders including Froome opened up a gap of over a minute, but Martin and the rest hustled back.

For deep cut cinephiles, The Dead Don't Die will probably ring a bell, as it was also the title of Curtis Harrington's '75 horror-noir period piece that showcased a '30s sailor (George Hamilton) who connects his brother's wrongful execution to a madman's army of zombies. We'll have more details when we get them, but if it's anything like his last few productions, expect information to be spare until closer to a premiere, which we imagine could end up being Cannes 2019. "But, no, I will not play a zombie".

No release date has yet been announced for The Dead Don't Die.
