Directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50) based on the book by Isaac Marion, the zom-rom-com follows an unlikely relationship between the handsome-but-undead R (Nicholas Hoult) and the very-much-alive Julie (Teresa Palmer). The promos we’ve seen so far suggest a movie that’s equal parts sweet and funny. Now the first four minutes have come online, giving us a better look at R and the grim, gray world he inhabits.
Zombies are very much in vogue at the moment. It seems that John Malkovich has signed on to Summit’s Warm Bodies, adaptated from the novel by Isaac Marion. The movie, which is to be directed by Jonathan Levine, is a take on the classic William Shakespeare tale ‘Romeo & Juliet’ with a twist for the horror genre. It tells the tale of a Zombie man who rediscovers his soul through a relationship with a human girl. Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class) plays the zombie; Teresa Palmer plays the girl; and Malkovich will play her father, General Grigio.
