News has come in today that veteran comedy actor Paul Reiser (Mad About You, Aliens) has signed on to star in the upcoming horror comedy Life After Beth. Dane DeHaan and Aubey Plaza are also starring in the movie from the co-writer of I Heart Huckabees. Read on for all the details.
The film seems to be based upon a short film of the same name from the U.K. filmed a few years ago.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paul Reiser has joined the cast of Life After Beth, an indie horror comedy being made by Jeff Baena, the writer of David O. Russell’s 2004 film I Heart Huckabees.
Beth, which Baena also wrote, stars Dane DeHaan as a young man who struggles to continue his relationship with his girlfriend Beth, being played by Aubrey Plaza, after she resurrects from the dead.
Reiser will be playing DeHaan’s father. (John C. Reilly is already on board as Plaza’s dad.)
The movie began production this week in Los Angeles.
