Diablo Cody set to produce zombie romantic comedy 'Breathers'
Diablo Cody is set for her collaboration with Fox Searchlight. This time she'll be producing a zombie romantic comedy (can that even exist?) based on upcoming novel "Breathers: A Zombie's Lament" by S.G. Browne, according to Variety.
Fox Searchlight acquired the rights to the book, which will be published March 3.Cody's debut movie, "Juno" and the upcoming "Jennifer's Body," were also on Fox Searchlight. Cody was the executive producer on "Jennifer's Body". She also created Showtime's "United States of Tara," which is in its first season.
"Breathers" focuses on a recently deceased man and new zombie who can't seem to adjust to his new existence. Weird or a possible blockbuster?
