Opening in theaters on February 1st is the new romantic-zombie-comedy from writer/director Jonathan Levine (50/50) entitled Warm Bodies. The film was based on the popular novel of the same name by author Isaac Marion, which was loosely based on William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. The film stars a terrific cast of up and coming young actors and veteran performers including Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class), Teresa Palmer (Take Me Home Tonight), Dave Franco (21 Jump Street), Analeigh Tipton (Damsels in Distress), Rob Corddry (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World), and Academy Award-nominee John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire).
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with Teresa Palmer to talk about her work on Warm Bodies. The talented young actress discussed the new film, her first impressions of the movie's unique premise, talking a look at the zombie apocalypse from a zombie's point of view, the Romeo and Juliet influence, her Julie's reluctant attraction to R, why she begins to like him, the awesomeness of having John Malkovich play her on-screen father, the legendary veteran actor's love for YouTube videos, and working on set with director Jonathan Levine.
