Lupita Nyong'o to Test Comedy Skills With Zombie Movie
Nov 1, 2017 by: WENN
Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o is set to put her comedy skills to the test in the new zombie movie Little Monsters.
The 12 Years a Slave star will feature alongside Beauty and the Beast's Josh Gad and Alien: Covenant actor Alexander England, who will portray a washed-up musician accompanying his nephew on a school trip so he can spend time with the kid's teacher, Miss Caroline, played by Nyong'o.
Gad has been cast as famous kids' show personality, Teddy McGiggle, who will also vie for Miss Caroline's affections, while they all fight for survival amid a zombie outbreak.
Little Monsters was written by Australian filmmaker Abe Forsythe, who is also directing.
Filming recently began Down Under, and the film is expected to be released in 2019.
