Johansson and Gordon-Levitt To Star in BREATHERS: A ZOMBIE'S LAMENT?

It’s being reported that Scarlett Johansson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are loosely attached to star in a new very cool sounding dark comedy called Breathers: A Zombie’s LamentThe film was adapted by Juno screenwriter Diablo Cody, from the book of the same title by S.G. Browne.

The story is a zombie romantic comedy that follows a character named Andy who discovers that he’s a decaying zombie. Andy goes through the process of trying to figure out how to live as a walking dead man in a society that denies his kind any basic rights.

This is a very interesting concept and an original take on the zombie genre. This should make for a solid film, and it would be great to see these two actors officially become attached to star in the film. 

Here’s a description from the book:

Andy Warner reanimates after the car accident that kills his wife, but is too mangled from his injuries to talk. He lives in his parents' wine cellar, occasionally attending a zombie support group and struggling to rejoin a society that offers the undead no rights, bans them from working and doesn't even punish those who destroy them. When Andy and his fellow zombies—notably Rita, a sexy suicide victim with a lipstick fetish, and Jerry, a Playboy-obsessed stoner—learn why they're so driven to consume human flesh, the repercussions are both tragic and hilarious.

What do you all think of this Zombie movie idea?
