'I Love Sarah Jane' Zombie Short Being Adapted for a Feature Film

I Love Sarah Jane

Just last month we got a look at the first trailer for the Sundance selected, chaotic drama Hesher starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Now it looks like director Spencer Susser will return to his roots for one of his next projects. The Age (via The Playlist) reports Susser is in the midst of adapting his short film I Love Sarah Jane (watch it below) into a feature length film. Though the title implies a simple romance, the story actually follows love in the midst of a zombie-infested, post apocalyptic world. There's nothing quite like embracing and sharing a kiss while a horde of zombies claws and staggers your way wanting your love stricken hearst and brains.

The film is almost four years old now, but features a now recognizable name in Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) along with relatively unknown talents like Brad Ashby, Valdimimir Matovic, Beau South and Peter Yacoub. The film still stands strong as a solid short film even with the cheesy, outdated special effects work. We all have to start somewhere, right? Anyway, with "The Walking Dead" making waves on cable and projects like Zombies vs. Robots getting off the ground, it's probably a good time for a zombie fueled romance. What do you think?

Sweet, watched this short a couple of months ago and thought it was very good...I wonder if the cast will be the same?

I always enjoy zombie films that take a completely different direction. I wouldn't mind a movie at all.

Reminds me of Harmony Korine's "GUMMO" almost to the letter.

Yeah, you shouldn't mess around with zombies like that. If you give them a chance to infect you, you deserve to die. They should be dealt with swiftly, not played around with, you sadists Aussie kids.

To be honest, I don't think the short is that great. Sure, the idea is good and I would love to see a coming of age/love story set in a zombie breakout but I don't know, I don't feel the short tells a proper story like it should, feels like a draft to me. So maybe this will be good!
