Teresa Palmer signs on to star in a Twilight-with-zombies movie

03.29.2011

You knew this was coming eventually and here were are facing the very real prospect of a TWILIGHT-style movie with zombies instead of vampires. The film in question is WARM BODIES and is decribed as a horror-romance that follow a human who falls in love with an "existentially tormented zombie." Ohhh lawdy.

The lovely Teresa Palmer, who at the risk of being repetitive really is quite lovely in all ways, has signed on to star as the Kristen Stewart of this film alongside Nicholas Hoult, who was once the ABOUT A BOY kid and most recently starred as Beast in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS.

The film is based on a book of the same name by Isaac Marion that you haven't read yet because it's one of those "we're basing a movie on a book that hasn't even been released yet." Jonathan Levine, who's directed some pretty decent movies with ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE and THE WACKNESS is set to direct for Summit Pictures.

The film has a talented cast and a talented director so is it possible they rise above their genre trappings to actually make an interesting movie? Perhaps instead of actually trying to be like TWILIGHT they're more ironically trying to be like TWILIGHT and a human-zombie love story will be a source of comedy throughout the film? One can hope...

Sorry to nit pick facts since I'm in with the Producer, but the book has been released, just not in the US.

I was anticipating Zombwilight, but totally as dark comedy. So, I hope you're right. That could be funny.

The only way this could work is if it's a black comedy.
And even then it's not very original. Remember the crappy '90s movie "My Boyfriend's Back"?

There's absolutely no way I'm getting a boner if she's making love to a zombie.

I give this project the middle finger. Why? The concept is stupid and defies logic.

WTF?!

What a horrible idea! A girl is going to fall in love with a zombie??.. WTF?! And an emo zombie at that? This breaks every rule of a zombie flick that I know of. Zombies are not conscious beings, that are nice and polite, and can practice self restraint. They'll eat that bitches brains if given a chance. The stupid Twilight formula doesn't work in the zombie genre. Even as a comedy, this thing fails. Besides they already did this in Deadgirl.

Jeez, it's like Hollywood sees one film that

Jeez, it's like Hollywood sees one film that works and they try to adapt it to every possible thing they can. They're about to shit on a lot of people's favorite genre.

The fact that I've been in lust with Teresa Palmer ever since I saw Restraint, added to the fact that I can't possibly fathom what kind of story could be made from this insane premise, actually has me morbidly (heh) curious about this.
