Fox Searchlight has acquired rights to the upcoming novel “Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament” by S.G. Browne.
Diablo Cody will produce the zombie romantic comedy, marking her third collaboration with the specialty label following Juno and the upcoming Megan Fox starrer Jennifer’s Body, which Cody executive produced.
“Breathers” centers on a recently deceased Everyman and newly minted zombie who is having trouble adjusting to his new existence. All that changes when he goes to an Undead Anonymous meeting and finds kindred souls.
Mason Novick is also producing, and Geoff Latulippe will adapt.
