We’ve received word that acclaimed actress Glenn Close has been tapped to star in the upcoming zombie comedy, SEA OAK, for Amazon Pictures.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the half-hour comedy is described as a mix of zombie drama and family revenge comedy.
Sea Oak revolves around Aunt Bernie (Close), a meek, unmarried woman with no children in a working-class Rust Belt City who dies tragically in a home invasion. Compelled by sheer force of dissatisfaction, she comes back from the dead full of rage and determined to get the life she never had. She proceeds to inflict a range of demands on what’s left of her nuclear family, including a quasi-stripper nephew and two feckless nieces, who live in a low-end subsidized hellhole of a housing complex called Sea Oak.
Written by George Saunders (Lincoln in the Bardo), Sea Oak is exec produced by Jonathan Krauss through his Affiliated Pictures banner. Lael Smith and Keir McFarlane co-executive produce.
The plot sounds kind of meh, to me but I’ll withhold judgment until it’s released.
