Lupita Nyong’o will star in Australian zombie comedy “Little Monsters.”

The zombie comedy-horror film also stars Josh Gad and Alexander England. The film centers around a “washed-up musician, Dave (played by England), who goes on his nephew’s school trip as he has a crush on the teacher, Miss Caroline (Nyong’o). Dave’s intentions are complicated by the presence of the world-famous kids show personality, Teddy McGiggle (Gad), who also has eyes for Miss Caroline. A sudden zombie outbreak then throws the trip into chaos,” Variety reports.

“Little Monsters” is written by Australian writer and will be directed by Abe Forsythe (“Down Under”). Snoot Entertainment and Made Up Stories will produce the film.

Nyong’o and the cast will begin shooting this month in Sydney, Australia.

This film is the next project up for the beautiful actress. Nyong’o has also starred in “12 Years a Slave,” which catapulted the actress to Oscar-winning status in Hollywood.
