Aubrey Plaza

Yes, we’re going with “zom-com” and we’re sticking to it.

While promoting the endlessly charming Safety Not Guaranteed overseas (seriously, I’ve watched it four times now, and it genuinely gets better, funnier, and sweeter with every watch), everyone’s favorite side-eye-throwing leading lady Aubrey Plaza revealed a new project – ad it sounds pretty perfect for Ms. Plaza and her comedic sensibilities.

The Guardian reports (via Cinema Blend) that the actress is prepping set to star in Life After Beth,a “really fucked-up” zombie comedy penned by her own boyfriend Jeff Baena (who previously co-wrote I Heart Huckabees, so that should give you some insight into his taste). Baena will also direct the film, which will also star no less than John C. Reilly. And that’s just about all we know about the project as of now, though we can’t imagine what other details you’d need beyond its apparent tone and its solid stars.

Plaza is currently filming A Many Splintered Thing and will next be seen in The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman and The To Do List.
