In usual Jarmusch fashion, he’s now quietly begun production on his next film and it’ll find him return to the genre world, this time with zombies.

Although there’s no official announcement yet, the director has been spotted in upstate New York with Adam Driver, Bill Murray, Selena Gomez, Chloë Sevigny, and Austin Butler filming a new zombie movie.

Update: Steve Buscemi, Tilda Swinton, Daniel Craig, Rosie Perez are also confirmed as part of the cast, Jeff Sneider reports.

Murray, who plays a police officer in the film, let the news slip earlier this year, telling Philly, “I’ve got a good job coming up.

Jim Jarmusch has written a zombie script that’s so hilarious and it has a cast of great actors: Rosie Perez, Daniel Craig.

But, no, I will not play a zombie.”.

If Jarmusch’s take on zombies is anything like vampires, we can expect one of the best movies in its specific genre. »

The scientists found that dog owners' aroma actually sparked activation in the "reward center" of their brains, called the caudate nucleus.
