Washington D.C [USA], October 31 (ANI): Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o and 'Beauty and the Beast' Josh Gad will star in zombie comedy 'Little Monsters.'

The film is helmed by Australian writer-director Abe Forsythe and will also star Alexander England, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The film follows 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 worlds 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.

Keith and Jess Calder's Snoot Entertainment and Made Up Stories are producing the movie.

The production of the film is currently underway in Sydney.

On work front, Nyong'o will next be seen reprising her role of Maz Kanata in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi' and Gad is currently seen in the biopic 'Marshall' and will next appear alongside Daisy Ridley and Judi Dench in the remake of 'Murder on the Orient Express.' (ANI)
