Potential Warm Bodies TV Adaptation Teased by Author Isaac Marion

In an interview with Syfy, Isaac Marion, the author of Warm Bodies, teased a potential television series adaptation of the zombie-romance novel series. The novel Warm Bodies was originally adapted into a film, starring Nicholas Hoult, in 2013. Since then, Marion said there have been talks about a film sequel adapting the other books in the series, but that “morphed into a TV series.” Marion went on to say that the series “was actually announced as ‘in development’ a couple of years ago, only to mysteriously go silent.” While the future of the adaptation still seems to be a mystery, the author confirmed that all four books have been optioned for TV. Marion said, “To me, Warm Bodies is just the opening act of the story — it’s actually 18 percent of the total word count — so it would be a dream to see the rest of it on screen someday.”
