April Ludgate is going to be up on the big screen! Well, sort of. “Parks and Recreation” breakout and film star in the making Aubrey Plaza is starring in a upcoming zomcom (zombie/romantic comedy) “Life After Death.” Jeff Baena’s film, following in the undead footsteps of “Warm Bodies,” stars Plaza, Dane DeHaan, Anna Kendrick, Matthew Gray Gubler, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Cheryl Hines and Paul Reiser. It tells the story of heartbroken Zach (DeHaan), whose girlfriend Beth (Plaza) unexpectedly dies and then mysteriously comes back to life.
The film premiered at Sundance earlier this year and A24 films will release it theatrically on August 15 in select theaters. Check out the trailer below:
