Summit's 'Warm Bodies' Moved to Feb. 1, 2013
Summit Entertainment has moved back its late-summer release Warm Bodies to Feb. 1, 2013. It was originally scheduled for an Aug. 10 opening.
Jonathan Levine is directing the project, which stars Nicholas Hoult and Theresa Palmer in the story of a zombie who rescues a girl from an attack and inadvertantly sparks a cross-dead romance. Levine also adapted the screenplay from the novel written by Isaac Marion.
Bruna Papanadrea is producing with David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman.
Warm Bodies will now hit theaters two weeks after Summit's heist thriller Now You See Me. and three weeks before Lionsgate's graphic novel adaptation I, Frankenstein. The film's original August date has Warner Bros.' Will Ferrell-Zach Galifianakis comedy Dog Fight, Columbia's Meryl Streep-Steve Carell comedy Great Hope Springs and TriStar's musical drama Sparkle competing for audiences.
