Josh Gad is headed back to the big screen and this time he will be joined by actress Lupita Nyongo’o. Today it was announced that the two will share the screen for Zombie-comedy, Little Monsters. In the film, the two will have to protect a group of children after an unforeseen Zombie outbreak.
Lupita Nyong’o and Josh Gad will star in Little Monsters, a zombie comedy from writer-director Abe Forsythe. Forsythe’s Down Under star Alexander Englandalso will topline the pic, which is in production in Sydney. The movie is being produced by Keith and Jess Calder’s Snoot Entertainment and Bruna Papandrea’s Made Up Stories. It has received major production investment from Screen Australia in association with Create NSW. The film follows Dave (England), a washed-up musician who volunteers to chaperone his nephew’s kindergarten class field trip after taking a shine to the plucky teacher, Miss Caroline (Nyong’o). Dave’s intentions are complicated by the presence of Teddy McGiggle (Gad) the world’s most famous kids show personality — and competition for Miss Caroline’s affections. One thing none of them bargained for, however, is a sudden zombie outbreak, from which Dave and Miss Caroline must protect the children.
