Jim Jarmusch to Open Cannes 2019 With Zombie Comedy ‘The Dead Don’t Die’
The 2019 Cannes Film Festival will open Tuesday, May 14 with the world premiere of Jim Jarmusch’s zombie comedy “The Dead Don’t Die.” The movie is backed by Focus Features and stars Adam Driver, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Selena Gomez, Danny Glover, Rosie Perez, Chloë Sevigny, and more. The star-studded ensemble cast made “Dead Don’t Die” a no-brainer for opening night. The film will premiere in competition.

“The Dead Don’t Die” stars Driver, Murray, and Sevigny as local cops who must spring into action when a zombie outbreak begins impacting the town’s citizens. The movie is the latest Cannes opening night selection, following Asghar Farhadi’s “Everybody Knows,” Arnaud Desplechin’s “Ismael’s Ghost,” and Woody Allen’s “Cafe Society.” Focus Features last opened Cannes in 2012 with the world premiere of Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom.” The indie distributor picked up rights to “Everybody Knows” last year as well.
