According to Heat Vision Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four) is in talks to join Nicholas Hoult in Summit Entertainment’s adaptation of Isaac Marion’s novel Warm Bodies, which has been described as ‘Twilight meets Shaun of the Dead‘.
The book follows an existentially-tormented zombie named R (Hoult) who begins an unlikely friendship with the human girlfriend of one of his victims. The blossoming relationship starts a chain reaction that will transform him, his fellow zombies and maybe the whole lifeless world.
Palmer will play “the daughter of one of the humans’ military leaders who is tiring of a life of constantly fighting off zombie attacks.” She’s probably playing the ‘human girlfriend’ too.
Jonathan Levin (The Wackness) is directing and the aim is to begin filming this summer for a 2012 release.
