“DEAD” CASTING: There are no hard feelings between Daniel Craig and “The Dead Don’t Die” director Jim Jarmusch. “Dead Don’t Die” actress Chloe Sevigny confirms that the “James Bond” star was supposed to be in the movie, but it didn’t work out for unknown reasons. Even so, Craig did visit the set of the movie while they were shooting in upstate New York.
Meanwhile, “The Dead Don’t Die” premiere party at La Terrasse by Albane, where star Bill Murray was spotted on the dance floor, continued into the wee hours with an impromptu party at the bar at The Carlton.
