Johansson and Gordon-Levitt to star in A Zombie’s Lament?

Scarlett Johansson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are loosely attached to star in the Diablo Cody-produced adaptation of S.G. Browne’s novel Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament.

Geoff Latulippe (Going the Distance) will adapt the book for the big screen.

Here is a brief synopsis of the novel from Browne’s official website:

Meet Andy Warner, recently deceased everyman and newly minted zombie. Resented by his parents, abandoned by his friends, and reviled by a society that no longer considers him human, Andy is having trouble adjusting to his new existence.  That all changes when he attends an Undead Anonymous meeting and discovers there’s more to undeath than decomposing.


The news of ScarJo and JoGo potentially joining the cast comes from Pajiba, although they emphasise that they are far from being set in stone.

Gordon-Levitt would likely play Andy Warner, while Slashfilm suggest that Johansson will star as “Rita, an impossibly sexy recent suicide with a taste for the formaldehyde in cosmetic products.”

Discuss: How does this pairing sound to you? Sexy, right?!
