Director Abe Forsythe‘s zombie-comedy Little Monsters was a big hit at Sundance where it was acquired by NEON and Hulu in a bidding war between studios. While we don't have a trailer or release date, we do have a peek at some footage from the film.
Forsythe talks about the film and previews some footage in the video below.
In the film described as "Zombieland meets Kindergarten Cop," "After a rough breakup, directionless Dave (Alexander England) crashes at his sister’s place and spends his days expanding his young nephew’s questionable vocabulary. When an opportunity arises to chaperone an upcoming school excursion alongside the charming and enigmatic teacher, Miss Caroline (Lupita Nyong’o), Dave jumps at the chance to impress her. What he wasn’t anticipating was Teddy McGiggle (Josh Gad), an obnoxious children’s television personality who shapes the excursion’s activities. What he was expecting even less was a zombie invasion, which unfolds after an experiment at a nearby military base goes awry. Armed only with the resourcefulness of kindergartners, Dave, Miss Caroline, and Teddy must work together to keep the monsters at bay and carve a way out with their guts intact."
Written and directed by Abe Forsythe, Little Monsters stars Alexander England, Lupita Nyong’o, and Josh Gad.
Little Monsters is produced by Keith and Jess Calder’s Snoot Entertainment (You’re Next, The Guest, Blair Witch) and Bruna Papandrea’s Made Up Stories.
