Video: Director discusses zombie comedy Little Monsters over footage

Little Monsters Lupita Nyong'o Abe Forsythe

The Sundance premiere I'm most looking forward to watching when it gets a proper release is writer/director Abe Forsythe's LITTLE MONSTERS, which our own Chris Bumbray was lucky enough to see and gave a 7/10 review.

Described as "ZOMBIELAND meets KINDERGARTEN COP", the film stars Lupita Nyong'o, Alexander England, and Josh Gad, and tells the story of 

directionless Dave (England), who crashes at his sister's place and spends his days expanding his young nephew's questionable vocabulary. When an opportunity arises to chaperone an upcoming school excursion alongside the charming and enigmatic teacher Miss Caroline (Nyong’o), Dave jumps at the chance to impress her. What he wasn’t anticipating was Teddy McGiggle (Gad), an obnoxious children's television personality who shapes the excursion's activities. 

What he was expecting even less was a zombie invasion, which unfolds after an experiment at a nearby military base goes awry. Armed only with the resourcefulness of kindergartners, Dave, Miss Caroline and Teddy must work together to keep the monsters at bay and carve a way out with their guts intact.

While the distribution rights are in the hands of Neon and Hulu, the companies have not yet revealed their release plans and there isn't even a trailer for the movie... But there is a preview of sorts online.

Embedded below is a video in which Forsythe discusses his film, and while he's talking we're shown a good amount of footage from LITTLE MONSTERS. I was already looking forward to the film, but after seeing its characters in action and hearing Forsythe talk about it I'm looking forward to it with even greater anticipation.

We'll let you know when there's release news about LITTLE MONSTERS, but in the meantime give this a look:
