The Dead Don't Die gives Shaun of the Dead a run for its money in first trailer

Iconic indie director Jim Jarmusch has dabbled in genre before, playing with oddball Western tropes, samurai aesthetics, and lusciously-rendered vampires, but going full-blown zombie movie is a bit of a departure for him.

But with a cast like The Dead Don’t Die's, Jarmusch can do basically anything he wants. The ensemble includes Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Iggy Pop, RZA, Selena Gomez, Tom Waits, and Rosie Perez. Phew. The film's first trailer dropped today and yes, Officers Murray, Driver, and Sevigny are up against zombies. Undead. Ghouls.

Some zombies need coffee while others crave wine in this un-deadpan take on the classic horror monster. With this collection of talent mixing comedy and the supernatural, it looks like Shaun of the Dead may soon have some competition. And again, just look at this cast:
