Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson to Play Undead in Diablo Cody's 'Breathers'

Undead Boy Meets Undead Girl in 'Breathers'

New details about Diablo Cody’s adaptation of S.G. Browne’s Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament surfaced today. The project, announced last February, has been laboring in development. Now, the script is being shopped to directors, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson are “loosely attached” to the project.

Breathers will be a zom-rom-com that follows a recently re-animated dead man as he “must figure out what it means to live as an Un-dead in a society that denies his kind basic rights” – while apparently also falling for a zombie girl.

Cody’s last film, Jennifer’s Body, was considered a bomb, so it’s hard to say who will sign on to direct. Though her stock may rise as her next film, Young Adult, which re-teams Cody with Juno director Jason Reitman, is generating buzz having landed leading lady Charlize Theron.

Personally, I’m a fan of Cody, JG-L, ScarJo and zombie movies with sociopolitical undertones – so I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that Breathed is brought to life.

Who would you like to see take on the directorial reins?
