Joseph Gordon-Levitt attached to Breathers

Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson. In the same film together. A zombie comedy produced by Diablo Cody. We think we’re hyperventilating with excitement…

Okay, we’ve calmed down now. Yes, Gordon-Levitt and Johansson could be about to sign on to a new film produced by cool-cat-of-the-moment Cody entitled Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament .

It’s based on the novel of the same name by S.G. Browne, a romantic comedy about dead guy Andy who is resurrected as a zombie. He then has to adapt to life as an Undead man in a society that hates him.

So, True Blood for zombies? Sounds like it. Don’t get too excited just yet, though, Pajiba report that the duo are currently just “loosely attached” to the project – which means they think it sounds as awesome as we do, but nothing’s been signed yet.

Still, this is a great set-up for both to sink their teeth into and, frankly, Gordon-Levitt is such a TF favourite that we’d watch his latest film even if it was just him in a room on his own with a ball of string.
