Today was a big day for zombies in movies. Must be getting closer to Halloween (October is only a day away). Re-post from The Hollywood Reporter:

– John Malkovich is in talks to play the villian in “Warm Bodies,” Summit’s adaptation of the zombie-centered book by Isaac Marion. Jonathan Levine (“50/50”) is directing the film.

– “Prison Break” villian Robert Knepper has joined Universal’s supernatural action pic R.I.P.D. opposite Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges.

While I’m somewhat interested in reading “Warm Bodies,” knowing Ryan Reynolds is involved in a zombie movie is quite the turn-off. —-Ash
