Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene, Alexandra Daddario and Oliver Cooper have signed on to star in Burying the Ex for director Joe Dante.

Alan Trezza wrote the screenplay based on his short film of the same name. The story follows Max (Anton Yelchin), a young man who moves in with his girlfriend Evelyn (Ashley Greene), only to see their relationship plummet, although he is too afraid to break up with her. After Evelyn dies in a freak accident, Max tries to move on with Olivia (Alexandra Daddario). However, his life is upended once again when Evelyn comes back from the dead, determined to win back her boyfriend, even if that means turning him into a zombie.

Voltage Pictures is financing the horror-comedy and producing along with ArtImage Entertainment, Scooty Woop Entertainment and Act 4 Entertainment. Cassian Elwes is serving as executive producer alongside Voltage's Zev Foreman and Dominic Rustam. Production is scheduled to begin today in Los Angeles.
