As time goes by it’s becoming evident that Jonathan Levine is one of the brighter emerging talents in Hollywood. I loved The Wackness, have heard great things about 50/50 and am eagerly awaiting a world where All The Boys Love Mandy Lane is widely, and legally, available.
So even though I’m sick of zombies it’s hard not to be excited about his take on the genre, Warm Bodies. Yesterday we heard that John Malkovich had joined the already impressive cast of Nicholas Hoult, Rob Corddry and Theresa Palmer.
And now we’re told that Lizzy Caplan (Mean Girls, Cloverfield, “Party Down” and 127 Hours) is now in “final talks” to join the cast as well. I’ve always liked her work and am stoked to see all of these people under Levine’s wing.
Based on the book by Isaac Marion the story “follows an existentially tormented zombie named “R” who begins an unlikely friendship with the girlfriend of one of his victims. It starts a chain reaction that will transform him, his fellow zombies, and maybe the whole undead world.”
