Hello Everyone! And welcome to Weird News Wednesday!
This week, the spotlight is on the upcoming movie Warm Bodies. Apparently this flick is going to be some sort of horror romance (odd combination, huh?), but it doesn't revolve around vampires or werewolves, both of which have been dominating the paranormal romance scene lately (e.g. Edward and Jacob).
Noooo, this movie is about a zombie with emotions, a zombie who actually falls in love with a girl and sets out to save her from being eaten by his reanimated corpse buddies.
The actor set to star in Warm Bodies as the zombie hero is Nicholas Hoult. Some of you may know him from the movie About A Boy, where he plays the adorable little character Marcus. Well, he's not little anymore, but rather all grown-up if you ask me.
Such big pretty Anime-boy eyes he has! Pity he's going to have to get all gunked up for the movie--then again, Hollywood may find a way to keep him sexy...though the idea of rotting flesh doesn't exactly turn me on.
But what I'm wondering is...if he's playing a zombie in love...and zombies typically have a hard time with their body parts decomposing...are we in for one hell of a disgusting love scene? Or is this romance going to be more of the soul-mate love kind without any sex?
I honestly don't know which I'd prefer, but I have to say if there is going to be a naughty romp, I'm far too curious not to watch.
Do you think this "genre" has a chance at taking off? I guess we'll see soon enough.
By the way, Warm Bodies is reportedly an adaptation of an unreleased short story by author Isaac Marion: "I Am a Zombie Filled with Love."
