Iggy Pop, Selena Gomez, RZA & Tom Waits Pop Up in Trailer For Jim Jarmusch's Zombie Flick 'The Dead Don't Die'
If you were ever wondering how Iggy Pop would look as a terrifying, blood-chugging, decomposing zombie, now's your chance: the trailer for Jim Jarmusch's The Dead Don't Die is here, and the rocker is officially undead in his latest motion picture.
Jarmusch is a demonstrated, dedicated Iggy Pop fan, and previously directed and released 2016's Gimme Danger, a documentary about the Stooges frontman.
The writer and director has extended his casting reach by casting a wider net in the musical realm with The Dead Don't Die, which also features Selena Gomez (as a human, not a zombie), RZA (an occasional collaborator of Jarmusch's through the Wu-Tang Clan, also playing a human and not a zombie) and Tom Waits (who appears to not as a zombie, but a man rocking a grizzled mane worthy of distinction).
Adam Driver (who played the lead in Jarmusch's last feature film, 2016's Paterson), Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi and Danny Glover also star in the dark and grisly comedy. If the trailer and Jarmusch's prior work offer any indication, the soundtrack will be just as killer as the talent assembled.
The Dead Don't Die hits theaters June 14. Watch the trailer below.
