Aubrey Plaza & John C. Reilly to Star in Horror Comedy 'Life After Beth'

Aubrey Plaza

This year Aubrey Plaza starred in one of the acclaimed indie films of 2012 with Safety Not Guaranteed. It was a great co-lead role for the actress who has had solid supporting turns in films like Funny People and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Next year she'll be in the spotlight for the raunchy romantic comedy The To-Do List, and now she's getting into horror comedy as well. The Guardian has word that Plaza will star in Life After Beth, a horror comedy from the co-writer of I Heart Huckabees, Jeff Baena. Plaza will be joined by John C. Reilly in the story of "Domestic bliss, tenderness, heartbreak and the undead." Wait, what now?

Though one might think this would be similar to Warm Bodies, Baena is writing and directing a film that sounds more like Shaun of the Dead as it follows a couple subsisting together in London in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. Maybe this one will be a little more serious? The movie is supposed to shoot in the spring, and just having Plaza and Reilly star opposite each other sounds enticing by itself. Hopefully we'll hear more about this horror romantic comedy soon.

i'd never heard of AP before SNG - but, that was a good movie and she did a nice job....i hope she continues to get more opportunities.

You should watch Parks & Recreation. She's great on it, and she's not even the best part. The entire cast is great and it's one of the best comedies on television. It's all on Netflix Instant too.
