Nyong’o, Gad Join Aussie Zombie Comedy

Lupita Nyong’o and Josh Gad are set to star opposite Alexander England (“Alien: Covenant,” “Gods of Egypt”) in the zombie comedy “Little Monsters” which began production this month in Sydney.

Actor turned director Abe Forsythe (“Down Under,” “Laid,” “Ned”) helms the film in which England plays washed-up musician Dave who volunteers to chaperone his nephew’s kindergarten class field trip after taking a shine to the plucky schoolteacher Miss Caroline (Nyong’o).

His intentions are complicated by the presence of the world’s most famous kids show personality, and competition for Miss Caroline’s affections, Teddy McGiggle (Gad). One thing none of them bargained for however, is a sudden zombie outbreak, from which Dave and Miss Caroline must protect the children.

Keith & Jess Calder, Bruna Papandrea, Jodi Matterson and Steve Hutensky are all producing the film through their Snoot Entertainment and Made Up Stories labels.
