Diablo Cody To Produce Rom-Zom-Com
Cody will be behind the upcoming zombie rom-com Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament, which will be written by newcomer Geoff LaTulippe. We’re kind of glad Cody’s not writing this one as it sounds like it could be good and after her last effort in Jennifer’s Body, we’re a little worried about work.
The script will be based on S.G. Browne’s debut novel of the same name and will follow Andy, a car crash victim who becomes reanimated. He has some trouble adjusting to his new found undead life until he meets Rita, a lipstick obsessed suicide case, at a zombie support group.
Cody recently told If Magazine, “We have a script, and I am thrilled with it and hope we can go into production with it soon. It’s a zombie love story. Zombies are so hot now, but I like to think it’s about the personal side of being a zombie and being ostracized.”
While we always thought Shaun of The Dead would have the monopoly on romantic comedies for the living deceased, just goes to show that there’s always room for more braaaiiins! We mean zombies.
