Teresa Palmer set to star opposite Nicholas Hoult in ‘Warm Bodies’

'I Am Number Four' actress hotly-tipped for zombie comedy

Teresa Palmer has been tipped to appear opposite Nicolas Hoult in forthcoming zombie thriller Warm Bodies.

Former Skins actor Hoult has already been confirmed to appear in the thriller, tipped to be a cross between Twilight and Shaun Of The Dead.

In the Jonathan Levine-directed film an existentially tormented zombie begins an unlikely friendship with the human girlfriend of one of his victims.

Now, according to Hollywoodreporter.com Palmer, recently seen in I Am Number Four, is close to signing on to play that character.

The character is described as “the daughter of one of the human’s military leaders who is tiring of a life on constantly fighting off zombie attacks.”

Warm Bodies is based on a novel by author Isaac Marion, and due to enter production soon.
