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?
