Teresa Palmer, who received a lot of notice for her breakout work in I Am Number Four, is in talks to star opposite Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class) in Summit’s zombie love story Warm Bodies, reports THR.
Jonathan Levine (All the Boys Love Mandy Lane) is directing the project, which, in a tone described as Twilight meets Shaun of the Dead, “follows an existentially tormented zombie named R that begins an unlikely friendship with the human girlfriend (Palmer) of one of his victims. The blossoming relationship starts a chain reaction that will transform him, his fellow zombies and maybe the whole lifeless world.”
Palmer’s character is described as the daughter of one of the humans’ military leaders who is tiring of a life of constantly fighting off zombie attacks.
The project is based on a book by Isaac Marion that will be published by Atria Books, a division of Simon and Schuster.
