Breathers: A Zombie's Lament to Star Scarlett Johansson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt?

Breathers: A Zombie's Lament is a zombie love story written by S.G. Browne.  It tells the story of Andy, who tragically dies and is reanimated as a living corpse.  In a world where who will be a zombie and who will not cannot be predicted, zombies have no rights, still have feelings and memories, and must attend Undead Anonymous meetings.  Before the book was even published, Diablo Cody jumped on board to produce the film adaptation.  And this was after the book was turned down by dozens of publishers!

Well, the rumour-mill is buzzing with the latest news that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will star as Andy.  After seeing him in Inception, I must admit that I'm excited at this news.  What about Andy's love interest, Rita?  Can anyone other than Scarlett Johansson make a zombie look hot?

Nothing is official and several sources of Hollywood news are simply saying that the two are "loosely" attached to the film.

For anyone not familiar with Breathers or S.G. Browne, check out Zombies & Toys' interview with Browne.  Also, revisit our guest review of the book.  Breathers is unique zombie novel that I originally had no intention of reading.  But am I happy to admit that it was one of the best books I read last year.  It was funny, warm, entertaining, and thought-provoking.  I encourage everyone to pick it up and give it a read.
