Warm Bodies, Jonathan Levine’s (50/50) adaptation of Isaac Marion‘s novel, is a zombie love story, out next summer. From The Collider: “Zombies love people, especially their brains. But R (Nicholas Hoult) is different. He’s alive inside, unlike the hundreds of other grunting, drooling undead—all victims of a recent plague that drove the remaining survivors into a heavily guarded city. Now the Zombies roam about an airport terminal, searching for human prey and living in fear of the vicious Boneys, the next undead incarnation. One day, R and his best friend M lumber toward the city in search of food. There, R first sets his eyes on JULIE (Teresa Palmer), a beautiful human. Determined to save her—first from the other Zombies and then from the Boneys—R hides her in his home, a cluttered 747 aircraft. Julie is terrified, and R’s grunted assurances of ‘Not…eat’ do little to calm her. But when R begins to act more human than Zombie, coming to her defense, refusing to eat human flesh, and even speaking in full sentences, Julie realizes that R is special… A genre-bending tale of love and transformation, WARM BODIES is a story about a boy who loves a girl…for more than just her body.” OMG, FABULOUS, and looks INFINITELY better that that Jack the Giant Killer dreck.
