The news of intriguing Australian film productions continues. Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o and Josh Gad are set to star opposite Australian actor Alexander England in the zombie comedy LITTLE MONSTERS, from Australian writer/director Abe Forsythe.
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 schoolteacher, Miss Caroline (Nyong’o). Dave’s 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.

She can next be seen in Star Wars: The Last Jedi from Disney/Lucasfilm. Gad, was this year in Beauty and the Beast will next be seen in Murder on the Orient Express.
