Rob Corddry Will Play A Zombie In Jonathan Levine's Warm Bodies
Director Jonathan Levine got his start in genre movies, with the acclaimed but still-unreleased horror movie All The Boys Love Mandy Lane -- yes, the movie we were wondering about in 2008 still hasn't seen the light of day. But since that movie remains under the radar Levine has found far more success in dramedy, with the coming-of-age story The Wackness and this fall's 50/50, which is already earning spectacular buzz and is one of our most anticipated upcoming movies. With that movie finished, though, Levine is moving on to his next project-- and wouldn't you know it, he's ready to tackle genre again.
Levine is putting together the cast for his next movie, Warm Bodies, an adaptation of isaac Marion's book about a romance between a zombie and a still human girl. Nicholas Hoult is set to play the zombie with a heart, with Teresa Palmer as the object of his affection, and now Variety reports that Children's Hospital star Rob Corddry will play another zombie, who like Hoult's character "is different from the rest of the undead." Production on the movie starts in September, which as it turns out, is when 50/50 will be playing the Toronto FIlm Festival and opening wide in theaters at the end of the month. Everything's coming up Jonathan Levine!
