Jim Jarmusch (1953 - )

"I always start with characters rather than with a plot, which many critics would say is very obvious from the lack of plot in my films - although I think they do have plots - but the plot is not of primary importance to me, the characters are."

I was going to put this in the Jim Jarmusch thread in the Filmmakers forum, but to my surprise there isn't one.

An old Bill Murray interview published in March but this seems to have slipped most people by:

"Jim Jarmusch has written a zombie script that’s so hilarious and it has a cast of great actors: Rosie Perez, Daniel Craig. It’s titled The Dead Don’t Die, and it shoots over the summer. But, no, I will not play a zombie."
In honor of the above post, DarkImbecile has put the muscle in to make a Jarmusch thread happen. Thanks to you both!
