In more good news, Murray who plays a police officer in the film, labelled the script “hilarious” back in March, said this to Philly: “I’ve got a good job coming up. Brace yourself: It’s a zombie movie.”

Murray added: “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.”
