Author Isaac Marion Warm Bodies Interview - Part 1
If you haven't caught on to Isaac Marion's writing yet, you're really missing out. For a taste of his style, check out his website which is filled with entertaining and imaginative short stories (my personal favorite has to do with an angry stoplight). And then, make sure you check out his book, Warm Bodies, which is in the process of being made into a feature film starring Nicholas Hoult (A Single Man, X-Men: First Class). Don't let the fact it's a zombie story deter you as Marion's Warm Bodies isn't just for genre fans.
Summit Entertainment, the studio backing Warm Bodies film version, brought Marion to the 2011 San Diego Comic Con to discuss his book. And in the first part of our exclusive interview, Marion talks about Warm Bodies, how his lead zombie's inner dialogue will make the transition to the feature film, his writing process, and where he gets his inspiration:
Warm Bodies Plot:
When an existentially tormented zombie named “R” begins an unlikely friendship with the girlfriend of one of his victims, it starts a chain reaction that will transform him, his fellow zombies, and maybe the whole lifeless world.
