Teresa Palmer Will Partake in Some Zombie Love for 'Warm Bodies'
After kicking some alien asses in I Am Number Four, the beautiful Aussie star Teresa Palmer will take on a genre mash-up for her next project. THR reports the actress will join Nicholas Hoult in the big screen adaptation of Isaac Marion's forthcoming novel Warm Bodies, a zombie love story from director Jonathan Levine (The Wackness). The story follows an existentially tormented zombie named R that begins an unlikely friendship with the human girlfriend (Palmer) of one of his victims. The blossoming relationship starts a chain reaction that will transform him, his fellow zombies and maybe the whole lifeless world. That's real love!
Palmer's character is described as the daughter of one of the humans' military leaders who is tiring of a life of constantly fighting off zombie attacks. Summit Entertainment is behind the flick which is unsurprisingly described as Twilight meets Shaun of Dead. Though I Am Number Four missed the mark a bit, Palmer's character was quite bad ass. But she can also be lovely and charming as in the recently released 80's comedy Take Me Home Tonight. The story itself sounds original, and as long as it doesn't have the same melodramatic tone of The Twilight Saga then we're in for something cool, I think. What do you think?

I hate the whole concept...love and zombies? cmon that's like peanut butter and pickles. trust me, I've tried. This idea is idiotic and infantile to the highest degree. love and zombies? please, thats just reaping the rewards from the teeny boppers who still can't differentiate between a vampire and a fairy (thanks a lot twilight) zombie literature does not need pathetic mash ups like this because it spoils the reputation and integrity of the entire genre. Books like this make me wanna cry, kill somebody, rob a bank, bury the bodies (with the cash!) make an elaborate map to said 'treasure', eat a taco, find the author of this book, laugh, go back home, shoot self, come back as a zombie, eat the author of this book, laugh, but I most certainly would not fall in love! Tallahasee would roll over in his undead grave before he would make love to a zombie. Who here likes good books? I for one have read this piece of dread. Made me want to attach a bomb to myself and go into mcDonalds, order a big mac and just sit there and eat it. Now you say that the bomb attached to my chest is pointless and serves no purpose? well neither does this book...well maybe Tinder, jacket stuffing, hell, This book MIGHT be useful for Taxerdermis.
