Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four) is in early negotiations to nab the lead female role in Summit Entertainment’s Warm Bodies.

Palmer will star opposite Nicholas Hoult (A Single Man) in the adaptation of Isaac Marion’s upcoming novel of the same name.

Warm Bodies is set in a world devestated by a zombie plague, and follows one of the undead, R (Hoult), who strikes up an unlikely friendship with the human girlfriend (Palmer) of one of his victims.

Jonathan Levine (The Wackness) is attached to direct.

Palmer will next be seen in the 80’s comedy-drama Take Me Home Tonight, which opens in the UK on May 13.
