John Malkovich Cast In WARM BODIES
John Malkovich is busy this fall! After performing in two operas The Giacomo Variations and The Infernal Comedy, he sets off to direct Les liasions dangereus in Paris. As if that weren’t enough; Deadline reports that Malkovich has been cast in the zombie film WARM BODIES.
While Warm Bodies is a zombie flick, it isn’t Night of the Living Dead! Instead, the film (directed by Jonathan Levine) is actually about a zombie who through a relationship with a human, rediscovers his humanity.
Warm Bodies is adapted from the novel by Isaac Marion and Malkovich is set to play the role of General Grigio, the man in charge of keeping a city of humans safe from the zombie hordes. Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four) plays his daughter (the girl the zombie falls in love with), with Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class) as the zombie.
