Summit Entertainment is hoping that future teen demographics buy into the concept that nothing says romance more than rotting flesh and walking corpses. In their plans to bring Isaac Marion's upcoming zombie romance book Warm Bodies to life on the silver screen, it seems the studio may be close to locking in their female lead star. Heat Vision reports that Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four) has been in discussion to join the production opposite male lead Nicholas Hoult. Helmer Jonathan Levine adapted the story to screenplay and will begin shooting this summer.

Plot Concept: Described as Twilight meets Shaun of the Dead, the story follows an existentially tormented zombie named R (Hoult) 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. 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.

If this is done tounge in cheek I think it could have potential...sounds like a comedy.... If this is meant to be another Twilight.... GODDAMN IT!!!

Seeing as how they did say it's like Suan of the Dead this could be interesting

 Eh, having watched a HORRIBLE zombie movie tonight, I'm willing to give most anything a chance.  The movie I watched tonight was about a zombie outbreak that starts in a special education school.  The title?...you guessed it:  RetarDEAD.  Not nearly as awesome as it sounds.

That is hilarious Caveman, never heard of RetarDead but the title alone deserves some props.

As for this? not really my cup of tea. I have yet to find any zombie comedy worth the price of admission. Once it hits cable that's probably when I'll check it out

The Bill Murray cameo in Zombieland was alone, worth the price of admission to two shitty zombie movies.

way to sell a movie......."it's like twilight meets........"  who the fukk cares, twilight should meet its death.

might as well sell it as.......Catwoman meets.........ah shit....twilight?

 Trust me, Wise, the title was why I watched it...it seriously made me want to go out and buy my own camcorder to do a better job.  Maybe I'm not being fair though...perhaps production value suffered because Cinemax told them "No."...LOL

Remember everybody, if you ever say that any theatrical release is the worst movie ever, my response will ALWAYS be, "You people don't watch enough movies."

 For the love of humanity!  Enough already with the tween romance taking over the monster world.  I haven't seen the film, but the plot of Ahh! Zombies! popped up on my Netflix new releases and it sounds quite similair to this film.

 Top 3 Zombie comedies:

1) Shawn of the Dead

2) Zombieland

3) Fido   

Where can you take it from there?  The zombie genre is one where it lacks in originality.  They just can't seem to break away from Romero's version.
