VIDEO: Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan Talk New Zom-Com LIFE AFTER BETH
"Life after Beth," starring Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) and Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Chronicle), screened at Sundance in January, where it was chosen among 12,218 submissions for the U.S. Dramatic Competition. Variety stated, "'Life After Beth' is thoughtful and laugh-out loud funny. Given the current undead craze in pop culture, commercial prospects look lively - especially among young adults accustomed to playful genre romps."
"Life After Beth" is set to hit theaters on August 15, and also stars John C. Reilly (Step Brothers, Anchorman 2), Molly Shannon (Saturday Night Live, Evan Almighty, Shallow Hal), Paul Reiser (Mad About You), and Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm).
While "Life After Beth" falls under the zombie movie genre, a fast-growing multi-billion dollar segment of the movie industry, it is expected that the film will have appeal amongst a much wider demographic.
