Yeah, But THIS Zombie Movie Stars Nicholas Hoult

Tuesday, March 1 by

First it was About A Boy, but now it’s all about Nicholas Hoult. The former child actor recently bagged a lead role in Brian Singer’s Jack the Giant Killer, and will play Beast in X-Men: First Class. Actors will probably be asking him for tips now whenever he walks to Pinkberry, cause Hoult just scored another starring role, this time in the zombie film Warm Bodies.

Summit Entertainment, who kicked off the never-ending vampire trend with Twilight, is now content to merely ride the zombie trend with this new pic, about a zombie who kills a girl, then becomes friends with her gal pal. How shirtless will Hoult’s character be? I’m guessing either “mostly” or “entirely.”

Like Twilight, Warm Bodies is also based on a book, this time by author Isaac Marion. Jonathan Levine (The Wackness) is directing. (TheWrap)
