Jonathan Levine ’00 to speak at ‘Warm Bodies’ advance screening this Sunday
The string of Hollywood notables to visit Brown will continue this Sunday night, as Jonathan Levine ’00–director of 2011′s 50/50 and 2008′s The Wackness–will screen and field questions on his upcoming zombie rom-com Warm Bodies. Levine’s latest stars Nicholas Hoult (apparently of fame for his role in the British teenagers-sexing-and-drinking drama series Skins) as a zombie whose love for a living girl (Teresa Palmer) seems to be bringing him back to life, and also stars John Malkovich, Dave Franco, Rob Corddry, and Analeigh Tipton. Though the premise may sound both tired and ridiculous on first glance, the story is adapted from an acclaimed novel of the same title and is one of the more anticipated movies of Winter/Spring 2013. For all those interested in attending (and I can’t see why you wouldn’t be), tickets will be distributed TODAY (Friday) at JWW at 3 p.m., free with a Brown ID, one per person. If you miss that, don’t despair–some walk-in space will be available as well on a first-come, first-serve basis. Don’t miss it.
