First Images of Zombified Ashley Greene in Horror Comedy Burying the Ex
Ashley Greene is no stranger to playing the undead, although being dead is significantly less glamorous in the upcoming horror comedy Burying the Ex than it is in the Twilight series:
The film follows a couple, played by Greene and Anton Yelchin, who have significant issues long before one of them is dead. In the same vein as Life After Beth, it appears to use the zombie trope as a metaphor for relationship problems. Here's the official synopsis:
"BURYING THE EX follows Max (Anton Yelchin), an all-around nice guy, and his overbearing but incredibly beautiful girlfriend, Evelyn (Ashley Greene). Their relationship takes a nosedive after they decide to move in together and Evelyn turns out to be a controlling, manipulative nightmare. Max realizes it's time to call it quits, but there's just one problem: he's too afraid to break up with her. Fate steps in when Evelyn is involved in a freak accident and dies, leaving Max single and ready to mingle. Several weeks later, he has a chance encounter with Olivia (Alexandra Daddario), a cute and spirited girl who just might be his soul mate. But that same night, Evelyn returns from the grave as a dirt-smeared Zombie and she's determined to live happily ever after with Max …even if that means turning him into one of the undead."
Burying the Ex is directed by Joe Dante, who is known for horror comedies such as the original Pirahna and Gremlins. The film will be screened tomorrow at the Venice Film Festival.
