Scarlett Johansson & Joseph Gordon-Levitt to Play Zombies

Scarlett Johansson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are teaming up for a new movie! And by the sounds of it, it’s going to be awesome!

Not only are there rad actors starring in it, but Diablo Cody is producing, and it’s about zombies! Random? Yes. Awesome? Hell yes.

/Film says the film, which is titled, “Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament,” is "Shaun of the Dead" meets "District 9.”

Here’s the actual synopsis:

Meet Andy Warner, a 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 a bit of trouble adjusting to his new existence. But all that changes when he goes to an Undead Anonymous meeting and finds kindred souls in Rita, an impossibly sexy recent suicide with a taste for the formaldehyde in cosmetic products, and Jerry, a twenty-one-year-old car crash victim with an exposed brain and a penchant for Renaissance pornography. When the group meets a rogue zombie who teaches them the joys of human flesh, things start to get messy, and Andy embarks on a journey of self-discovery that will take him from his casket, to the SPCA, to a media-driven class-action lawsuit on behalf of the rights of zombies everywhere.

Let’s hope they sign on to it! Talk about a different genre for both of them!
