Summit Picks Up Zombie Romance Warm BodiesGoon
We are all aware of what Summit has done to vampires.. are they trying to do the same to zombies? Today Variety reported that they have acquired feature rights to zombie romancer "Warm Bodies" and tapped Jonathan Levine to write and direct. Levine is best known for directing All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.
"Bodies" is based on a book by Isaac Marion who originally self-published the novel and sold it through his web site before the publishing rights were picked up by Atria Books, with publication set for this summer.
The story centers on an existentially tormented zombie who begins an unlikely friendship with the girlfriend of one of his victims and starts a chain reaction that will transform him and his fellow zombies.
