‘Mandy Lane’ Director Takes New Spin on Zombie Genre with ‘Warm Bodies’

I love when a studio has the balls to take on something bizarre and original. Kudos to Summit Entertainment who has acquired feature rights to zombie romancer Warm Bodies tapping All the Boys Love Many Lane helmer Jonathan Levine to write and direct. 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. Bodies is based on a book by Isaac Marion who originally self-published the novel and sold it through his web site before the publishing rights were picked up by Atria Books, with publication set for this summer.
