WARM BODIES: Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer Talk Zombies, Respecting Rules, and Then Breaking Them
We've seen zombies walk, run, jump, and fight sharks, but we've never seen one fall in love with a human...that is, until now!
Written and directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50, The Wackness, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane), Warm Bodies stars Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class, A Single Man, About a Boy) and Teresa Palmer (Take Me Home Tonight, I Am Number Four, Wish You Were Here). The film is a fresh "Beauty and the Beast" meets "Romeo & Juliet" take on the decaying genre. You know, if Romeo had to fight the urge to eat the beauty's brains as he fell head over heels for her.
I sat down with Hoult and Palmer to discuss the film's unconventional approach to the genre, how it respected the rules while bending and breaking them, the film's eclectic soundtrack, and more. More, in this case, being the pair rating my ability to act like a zombie.
