First Look: Zombie Aubrey Plaza in Sundance Comedy 'Life After Beth'
What other hidden gems can we discover early in the first Sundance 2014 announcement? How about a comedy where Aubrey Plaza (of Mystery Team, Funny People, Safety Not Guaranteed, "Parks & Rec") plays Dane DeHaan's girlfriend Beth, who he keeps as his girlfriend after she becomes a zombie. It's titled Life After Beth (nice) and does indeed star Plaza as a zombie. The ensemble cast includes more excellent names like John C. Reilly, Paul Reiser, Anna Kendrick, Alia Shawkat and Molly Shannon. Hopefully not too similar to Warm Bodies, this does sound interesting, we'll catch it at Sundance in January. First look below.
Here's the first three photos from Jeff Baena's Life After Beth (click for HQ), arriving direct from Sundance:
Here's the fun synopsis from Sundance: Zach is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth. When she mysteriously returns, he gets a second chance at love. Soon his whole world turns upside down... Life After Beth is both written & directed by American filmmaker Jeff Baena, making his feature directing debut after co-writing the I Heart Huckabees screenplay in 2004 with David O. Russell. The film was oddly co-produced by American Zoetrope, Francis Ford Coppola's production company. This will be premiering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in the US Dramatic Competition category. We're definitely planning on catching this at the festival and will have a review of it from there. Looks like it'll be fun, I dig these photos.
