Diablo Cody Producing ‘Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament’

Diablo Cody (Juno, Jennifer’s Body) producing S. G. Browne’s novel Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament, according to Production Weekly. The script is being adapted by Geoff LaTulippe. Beyond the break you can check out a long synopsis for the romantic zombie comedy that’s said to be a hilarious debut novel about life (and love) after death.Meet Andy Warner, a recently deceased everyman and newly minted zombie. Resented by his parents, abandoned by his friends, and reviled by a society that no longer considers him human, Andy is having a bit of trouble adjusting to his new existence. But all that changes when he goes to an Undead Anonymous meeting and finds kindred souls in Rita, an impossibly sexy recent suicide with a taste for the formaldehyde in cosmetic products, and Jerry, a twenty-one-year-old car-crash victim with an exposed brain and a penchant for Renaissance pornography. When the group meets a rogue zombie who teaches them the joys of human flesh, things start to get messy, and Andy embarks on a journey of self-discovery that will take him from his casket to the SPCA to a media-driven class-action lawsuit on behalf of the rights of zombies everywhere.
