Hoult turns zombie in Warm Bodies

Nicholas Hoult could be set for a zombie transformation in Warm Bodies.

The British star has signed on to play a member of the undead who rediscovers his soul through a romance with a human, played by Teresa Palmer, reported Deadline.

John Malkovich is said to be in talks to play General Grigio - the father of Teresa's character - in Jonathan Levine's upcoming film, the big-screen adaptation of Isaac Marion's novel.

Since appearing in Tom Ford's A Single Man alongside Colin Firth and roles in Clash Of The Titans and X-Men: First Class, the former Skins actor has carved out a successful film career. He will next appear in Jack The Giant Killer alongside Ewan McGregor and Bill Nighy.

As for John, he is set to swap the big screen for the stage to perform in two operas - The Giacomo Variations and The Infernal Comedy - before starting work to direct a French-language version of Les Liaisons Dangereuses in Paris.

He is then expected to reprise his role as eccentric assassin Marvin Boggs for the Red sequel.
