First we heard of the Diablo Cody-produced Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament, the book that the script was being adapted from hadn’t even been released yet. Now it has, and people seem to be digging it. Meanwhile, on the film front, the script is ready to go, and directors are taking a look. The leads of the film may already be set though, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson loosely attached to star. That could change when it finds a director, but for now, it’s a fun pairing to consider.
