Director Jonathan Levine (The Wackness) recently replaced Nicole Holofcener as the director of a comedy about cancer formerly titled I'm With Cancer, which stars Seth Rogen, James McAvoy, and new addition Anna Kendrick. Turns out Levin also has another project in the works as well.
According to The Playlist, Levine will also adapt and direct the zombie love story Warm Bodies, based on an unreleased novel by Isaac Marion. Marion based the novel on the short story "I Am a Zombie Filled With Love," which examines a zombie's desire for love through his diary entries.
Summit Entertainment, the production company responsible for The Twilight Saga movies, has lined up the project, in a move that seems to signal a wish to be involved with any story involving love and the undead.
Levine starts production on the Cancer movie next month, and hopes to have the Warm Bodies script done by then. Production is likely to begin after Levine finishes with Cancer, which puts Warm Bodies into a possible 2012 release date. Until then, Marion has made his short story available online, which can be read here. Posted 01.20.10 by Ryan
Looking back at our first-annual "Breakout Stars" predictions (2009), we hit only about .300. Chris Pine, Channing Tatum, and 3-D were hits. Jody Hill, Saoirse Ronan, and Rian Johnson were misses, as was Ayelet Zurer, the Israeli stunner who we thought would finally catch on with American audiences as Tom Hanks' co-star in Angels and Demons. Damn.
This year we're looking to improve our batting average with these 10 new predictions &mdash and we didn't even include Rosamund Pike, who looks to be darn near a sure thing with four movies set for release in 2010. Check out our list of The 10 Breakout Stars of 2010. Posted 01.05.10 by reelz
Anna Kendrick (Jessica), Justin Chon (Eric), Christian Serratos (Angela) and Michael Welch (Mike Newton) were all spotted arriving in Vancouver, where Twilight sequel New Moon is currently being filmed.
The human characters are joining vampires and werewolves on the set of the movie, as Kristen Stewart and co. have already been busy shooting scenes over the past couple of weeks.
All that's missing from the cast is the remaining members of the Volturi, who are key characters in the final chapters of the book. Dakota Fanning and Jamie Campbell Bower are the only confirmed Volturi actors so far, though expect further announcements fairly soon. With a domestic release date set for November 20th, Summit had better stop counting their money and get a move on. Posted 04.06.09 by reelz
