Nicholas Hoult Looking for Warm Bodies

Name two things that go together better than zombies and romance! Umm … Anyone? Think, people, think! It worked for Shaun of the Dead, did it not? With the Twilight saga winding down (just bite the damned baby already), Summit Entertainment is hoping that it will score big for them as well.

Nicholas HoultWe first told you about the flick Warm Bodies over a month ago, and now thanks to The Hollywood Reporter we have some casting news to throw your way.

According to THR British actor Nicholas Hoult (pictured right; X-Men First Class, Jack the Giant Killer) has been cast in Summit’s Warm Bodies. Jonathan Levine (All the Boys Love Mandy Lane) will write and direct.

The story centers upon an existentially tormented zombie who begins an unlikely friendship with the girlfriend of one of his victims and starts a chain reaction that will transform him and his fellow zombies.

Warm Bodies is based on a book by Isaac Marion, who originally self-published the novel and sold it through his website before the publishing rights were picked up by Atria Books with publication set for this summer. Look for more soon.
