Academy Award wining actress Lupita Nyong’o is set to star in upcoming zombie comedy, Little Monsters alongside Josh Gad and Alexander England.  The comedy hails from writer-director Abe Forsythe, and production is currently underway in Sydney.

The film revolves around Dave (England), a washed-up musician who volunteers to chaperone his nephew’s kindergarten class field trip after taking a shine to the plucky teacher, Miss Caroline (Nyong’o). Dave’s intentions are complicated by the presence of Teddy McGiggle (Gad) the world’s most famous kids show personality — and competition for Miss Caroline’s affections. One thing none of them bargained for, however, is a sudden zombie outbreak, from which Dave and Miss Caroline must protect the children.

Earlier this year, Nyong’o appeared in the TuPac biopic All Eyez On Me where she portrayed the late mother of the late rapper, Afeni Shakur.  She also starred in the Disney drama Queen of Katwe.  Nyong’o is set to star in Elizabeth Banks’ upcoming reboot of the action-comedy Charlie’s Angels.  She can be seen next in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and in the highly anticipated Ryan Coogler film Black Panther scheduled to hit theaters on Feb. 16, 2018.
