Nicholas Hoult is set to play the lead part of a lady-loving zombie in the new teen romance Warm Bodies.

The movie - which is based on the well-loved novel by Isaac Marion - could be the next big living dead romance since Twilight, but with a zombie twist.

Screen Daily reports that Nicholas, who's set to be all over the big screen with roles in X-Men: First Class, Mad Max: Fury Road and Jack the Giant Killer, will star as a lonely, killer zombie who becomes good friends with the girlfriend of one of his unfortunate casualties.

Nicholas shot to fame after playing cheeky, troubled child Marcus in About A Boy, and for his role as Tony Stonem in Channel 4's teen drama Skins.

Written and directed by Jonathan Levine, Warm Bodies will add to the ever-growing string of human meets undead love stories that are due out in 2012.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

A friend will tell you about a job opening at their company. This lead will turn into a dead end. Don't set your hopes on this possibility. Instead of looking for another job, concentrate on fulfilling your duties. Tempers are running high. The last thing you want is to catch the attention of an irritable superior. If someone does criticise your work, remain silent. These remarks may be terribly unfair, but defending yourself will only make the situation worse. Breathe deep. This, too, shall pass.More
