I’m really looking forward to Jonathan Levine’s Warm Bodies. I think he’s a great new talent with a deft handle on a lot of tones that most directors his age would turn mawkish.
This new image out of AFM confirms that Summit is intent on making a bid to the Twilight audience with this film. With all of the success the franchise has had, I can’t blame them. But it’s okay to expect more out of this movie. I recently spent some time on the film’s set – and while I can’t say ANYTHING yet – everything indicates that it’s far better and more interesting than anything Twilight.
The film stars Nicholas Hoult, Rob Corddry, Theresa Palmer and John Malkovich. 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.”
