Former “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” correspondent Rob Corddry has seen and done a lot in his career. Everything from firing guns while intoxicated to going back in time via hot tub to nail hot chicks. Now it’s time for the man to move into the big leagues by tacking zombies. Definitely the next logical step, wouldn’t you say?
According to Variety Corddry is in final negotiations to join Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer in Summit Entertainment’s zombie flick Warm Bodies.
Jonathan Levine (50/50) is writing and directing the supernatural romancer, which is based on the novel by Isaac Marion.
The story follows an existentially-tormented zombie who falls for the girlfriend of one of his victims and decides to protect her from his brain-eating brethren as he begins to reconnect with his dormant humanity.
Hoult stars as R, a zombie who’s different from the rest of the undead, while Corddry will play M, the only other zombie like him … at first.
Bruna Papandrea (Milk) is producing through her Make Movies banner, while Laurie Webb and Cori Shepherd Stern serve as exec producers. Summit’s Erik Feig and Gillian Bohrer will oversee the project for the studio. Production starts in September.
