Lupita Nyong'o to star in zombie rom-com 'Little Monsters'

Lupita Nyong’o is steadily rolling in her post-Black Panther moves.

She’s in talks to star in the Charlie’s Angels reboot, and now, she’s set to star in a zombie comedy called Little Monsters with Josh Gad. It’ll also star Alexander England. The title of the film is the only relation it has to the 1989 black comedy of the same name.

England will play a musician Dave, who crushes on the teacher on his nephew’s school trip named MissCaroline (Nyong’o). However, acting on those feelings are compromised by personality from a kids show named Teddy McGiggle (Gad), who also likes Miss Caroline. In the midst of this, there is a zombie outbreak and Dave and Miss Caroline must protect the kids.

Production on the film is underway in Sydney.
