Actors join Zanuck Co.'s thriller

Bill Murray and Lucas Black have joined the cast of the period dramatic thriller “Get Low” for the Zanuck Co.

Robert Duvall and Sissy Spacek star in the Aaron Schneider-helmed pic, which is based on the true story of Felix “Bush” Breazeale, a Tennessee recluse who planned his own funeral in 1938 while he was still alive and could enjoy it. Schneider, C. Gaby Mitchell and Chris Provenzano penned the screenplay.

Murray and Black play partners at the funeral home.

“Get Low,” which starts shooting this week in Georgia, is being financed by K5 Intl., the Germany- and U.K.-based worldwide sales and finance firm. Richard, Dean and Harrison Zanuck are producing.

Murray most recently starred in Walden Media’s “City of Ember.”

Black recently wrapped a starring role in Screen Gems’ “Legion,” opposite Paul Bettany and Dennis Quaid.
