Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four) is in talks to join Summit Entertainment’s Warm Bodies, reports Heat Vision.
Written and to be directed by Jonathan Levine, the film is about an existentially tormented zombie named “R” (Nicholas Hoult) who begins an unlikely friendship with the girlfriend of one of his victims. That starts a chain reaction which will transform him, his fellow zombies, and maybe the whole lifeless world.
According to the article, Palmer would play “the daughter of one of the humans’ military leaders who is tiring of a life of constantly fighting off zombie attacks.”
The project is based on a book by Isaac Marion. Filming is scheduled to start this summer.
