When it was announced that Jim Jarmusch would be writing and directing a zombie movie called THE DEAD DON'T DIE, I definitely did not expect the filmmaker behind such movies as DOWN BY LAW, DEAD MAN, and ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE to deliver a full-on zombie comedy with Bill Murray and others mowing down herds of the walking dead with shotguns and samurai swords… But I'm so glad the newly released trailer for THE DEAD DON'T DIE has revealed the film to be exactly that.

Boasting "the greatest zombie cast ever disassembled", THE DEAD DON'T DIE has surrounded Murray with the likes of Adam Driver, 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. All of them either fighting zombies or becoming zombies.

The film doesn't have an official synopsis, but it appears to be a simple tale of quirky characters dealing with a zombie outbreak. 

THE DEAD DON'T DIE is set to reach theatres on June 14th, and after watching the trailer I am officially hyped for it.
