Rob Corddry considering Warm Bodies

Comedy writer and actor, Rob Corddry, who made his bones on THE DAILY SHOW, is in final talks for zombie comedy, WARM BODIES.

The film which will be directed and written by Jonathan Levine (50/50, THE WACKNESS) is based on the book by Isaac Marion. Here’s the publisher’s synopsis:

‘R’ is a zombie. He has no name, no memories, and no pulse, but he has dreams. He is a little different from his fellow Dead.
Amongst the ruins of an abandoned city, R meets a girl. Her name is Julie and she is the opposite of everything he knows – warm and bright and very much alive, she is a blast of colour in a dreary grey landscape. For reasons he can’t understand, R chooses to save Julie instead of eating her, and a tense yet strangely tender relationship begins.
This has never happened before. It breaks the rules and defies logic, but R is no longer content with life in the grave. He wants to breathe again, he wants to live, and Julie wants to help him. But their grim, rotting world won’t be changed without a fight…[Vintage books]

The film will star Nicholas Hoult (SKINS / X-MEN: FIRST CLASS) as R and Teresa Palmer (I AM NUMBER FOUR) as Julie. It is unsure at this time which role Corddry will be playing.

Paul finished is BA in Film & Broadcast Productions during the summer and has somehow landed the position of Media & Marketing Manager in the London Korean Film Festival happening this November (plug). While at University Paul found his speciality lay in Script Development, scriptwriting and Editing. He has written, edited and director a small number of not very good short films but does not let that dissuade him from powering through. After the Koreans are through with him he looks to enter the paid world of Script Development. He likes incredibly bad horror films, East Asian movies, comics and lots of other stuff.
