Focus Features’ The Dead Don’t Die is advertised as having “the greatest zombie cast ever disassembled,” a bold claim but one that’s nearly impossible to argue with. Writer/director Jim Jarmusch (Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, Broken Flowers) has put together a first-rate cast to play members of the walking dead and those who are out to put an end to their rise from the grave.
The trailer features clips of the ensemble but focuses on Bill Murray, returning to the undead world after his cameos in 2009 Zombieland and its upcoming sequel, 2019’s Zombieland: Double Tap. Adam Driver also stars as a cop who puts his minor league baseball background to good use batting down zombies.
The ensemble also includes Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Rosie Perez, Iggy Pop, Sara Driver, RZA, Selena Gomez, Carol Kane, Austin Butler, Luka Sabbat and Tom Waits.
Jim Jarmusch’s behind the scenes team includes director of cinematography Frederick Elmes, production designer Alex DiGerlando, and costume designer Catherine George.
Focus Features will release The Dead Don’t Die in theaters on June 14, 2019. In addition to releasing the official trailer, Focus just unveiled the zombie-filled poster for the zombie comedy.
