Joseph Gordon-Levitt Might Find Love as a Zombie in ‘Breathers’

There are few things more irritating in this country than being a zombie and having to deal with status as a second class citizen. Fortunately, it’s almost Fall – the time when a young zombie’s fancy turns toward romance.

I’ve only read the first few chapters of S.G. Browne’s “Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament,” but from the outset it seems like a calmer version of the minimalist writing of Chuck Palahniuk – only the main character has been “re-animated.” It’s even got the Anonymous meeting connection.

The adaptation of the novel got another kick toward reality now that Geoff LaTulippe’s script is finished and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson are attached (albeit in a casual fashion). LaTulippe’s work can be seen in theater with Going the Distance which displays how clearly he understands the romantic comedy genre. It’s unclear whether he gets zombies, but those two names are big enough to make this something to look out. Maybe it’ll be like 500 Brains of Summer. [Pajiba]
