More Zombies! John C. Reilly and Aubrey Plaza Joining the Trend

- 12-17-12Film Posted by Jason McAnelly

Waves upon waves of zombies assault us on a daily basis.  The hordes are here, but they’re not in the streets of our cities.  Instead, they’re invading our movie theaters and television sets with a stream of zombie-themed programming, some of it good, most of it not-so-good.  One more attack is underway as John C. Reilly (AKA Dr. Steve Brule) and Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) are set to come together in a zombie comedy.

Named Life After Beth, the only thing we known about the new project is that it is, in the words of Plaza, “a really fucked-up movie.”  Hmm… doesn’t sound like much of a comedy, but who knows?  Jeff Baena (I Heart Huckabees) is writing the script and will be taking his first shot in the director’s chair with this film.

Any opinions from the peanut gallery?  Too many zombie films?  Worth it to see Reilly in a movie of this genre?  Could care the hell less?

 

Thanks to CinemaBlend for the heads-up.
