The Warm Bodies are stacking up. A few days ago we heard that John Malkovich had joined the already impressive cast of Nicholas Hoult, Rob Corddry and Theresa Palmer as the film’s main villain, General Grigio. Then yesterday we got word that Lizzy Caplan was on the verge of signing on as well.
Now Variety is reporting that Dave Franco (“Scrubs”, Fright Night), Analeigh Tipton (Crazy, Stupid Love) and Cory Hardrict (Battle Los Angeles) are joining the cast as well.
Per Variety, “Hoult stars as an existentially tormented zombie named “R” who begins an unlikely friendship with the girlfriend (Palmer) of one of his victims, starting a chain reaction that has widespread consequences… Tipton is in negotiations to play Nora, Palmer’s best friend, who struggles with her budding emotions in a world infested by zombies… Franco is closing a deal to play Perry Kelvin, Palmer’s boyfriend, who gets over his initial fear of zombies and helps leads the human resistance… Hardrict is set to play Kevin, one of Palmer’s dorky friends who serves as Malkovich’s right-hand man. He’s a member of a enclave of humans who have enclosed themselves within a walled city known as the Green Zone.”
Pictured below is one of the three new thesps on the project. Any guesses as to who it is?
