MORE PARKS

For Aubrey Plaza and Dane DeHaan, there’s plenty more life — and acting work — after “Life After Beth.”

The two busy young actors pair up for the zombie romantic comedy that premiered this weekend at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

It was on Park City’s Main Street that Plaza found out that her NBC series “Parks & Recreation” had been renewed for a seventh season.

“Jim O’Heir screamed at me and was like, ‘Seventh season!’ So that’s how I found out,” she said.

How many more are in the works?

DeHaan, 27, suggests 21 seasons total, “So you’re a third of the way through.”

“I mean, I just don’t see a world where NBC would ever let Amy Poehler go. I mean who would want to let that one go?” Plaza said.

Neither actor is a Sundance newbie — DeHaan was there last year with “Kill Your Darlings” and Plaza was there two years ago with “Safety Not Guaranteed.”

“The first time I was here with that movie it was overwhelming because I didn’t know and I just felt used,” the 29-year-old Plaza said, smiling. “But now I feel like I’m using everyone else. So I win this time.”

DeHaan — who appears in this summer’s “Amazing Spider-Man” sequel — has been preparing for months now for the difficult task of playing James Dean in the indie film “Life,” which starts shooting next month.
