Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson are rumored to star in an upcoming Diablo Cody-produced adaptation of the novel Breathers: A Zombie's Lament. Currently, it's being called a "zom-rom-com." Yeah, seriously -- a zom-rom-com. Double-you-tee-eff.
Breathers tells the story of Andy (most likely played by Gordon-Levitt), who dies and comes back to life as a zombie. Naturally, he doesn't fit in (because he's a friggin' zombie!) and he's forced to find his way in a prejudice world. Johansson will probably play Andy's lover, Rita. So basically, it's kind of like Romeo & Juliet -- with zombies!
No words come from Diablo Cody this time around, as Geoff LaTulippe (Going the Distance) penned the adaptation. After the disaster that was Jennifer's Body, she probably just wanted to attach herself to something that's guaranteed to succeed.
Regardless, Gordon-Levitt and Johansson will be an entertaining couple on screen. Both are fantastic actors who will be able to set the standard in the... zom-rom-com genre.
