Cute female comic Aubrey Plaza -below ('Scott Pilgrim vs. the World') and hugely entertaining actor John C. Reilly ('Step Brothers') are stepping into the world of the undead by signing on for Jeff Baena's ('I Heart Huckabees') new directorial effort 'Life After Beth'. The horror comedy is based (loosely?) on the UK short by director Mysterious Al the video of which you can check out below. The short itself which is perfectly hypnotic for its 7 mintue run will need a heck of a lot of padding and substance to help swing it into a proper feature length. Hopefully writer/director Baene, who just happens to be the partner of star Plaza, has the goods. Plaza, herself, has described the project as "a really fucked-up movie". Splendid!
