The Dead Don't Die is an upcoming American comedy zombie film, written and directed by Jim Jarmusch. It stars Adam Driver, Bill Murray, Selena Gomez, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Austin Butler, Tilda Swinton and Caleb Landry Jones.



In March 2018, Bill Murray announced that he was set to costar in a film, alongside Daniel Craig and Rosie Perez, to be written and directed by Jim Jarmusch. Speaking of the project, Murray stated:

It’s a zombie movie. Jim Jarmusch has written a zombie script that’s so hilarious and it has a cast of great actors: Rosie Perez, Daniel Craig. It’s titled The Dead Don’t Die, and it shoots over the summer. But, no, I will not play a zombie.[1]

In July 2018, it was announced that Adam Driver, Selena Gomez, Chloë Sevigny, Austin Butler, Steve Buscemi and Tilda Swinton had been cast in the film alongside Murray (however, neither Perez nor Craig were noted as still be attached to the film). Joshua Astrachan and Carter Logan would produce the film, while Focus Features will distribute the film.[2][3][4] Caleb Landry Jones joined the cast later in the month.[5]


Principal photography began in July 2018 in New York City.[6]
