"Warm Bodies" - Upcoming Zombie Romance Novel/Movie

The rights to a new zombie film based on a book by Isaac Marion have been picked up by Summit Entertainment. The novel, Warm Bodies, is being published this summer by Atria Books. From Variety:

[The] story centers on an existentially tormented zombie who begins an unlikely friendship with the girlfriend of one of his victims and starts a chain reaction that will transform him and his fellow zombies.

Film details thus far in a nutshell:
* Jonathan Levine will write and direct
* Bruna Papandrea will produce through Make Movies
* Laurie Webb and Cori Shepherd Stern

I wasn't overly excited when I first read about this one. Personally, I prefer the traditional "run/shoot it's a friggin' zombie" type of film. Though, I originally was not excited about SG Browne's Breathers but now admit to it being one of the best books I read last year. Reading an excerpt from Warm Bodies quickly sparked some enthusiasm and now I am eager to give it a read. Eventually, I'll learn that different can still be good. To read the excerpt yourself as well as some words from the author, head over to burningbuilding.com.

  1. I heard a vicious and damning rumour that Nicholas Hoult was playing 'R' in the movie. Please for the sake of all that is holy tell me this isn't true!

    I heard the same thing, No offence to Mr Hoult of course, But this role belongs to a Robert Downey Jr type.

  4. Sigh... it looks like 'R' in the movie won't be wearing his original clothes (semi-business casual or something, with the red tie!)
