Rob Corddry in final talks for ‘Bodies’

Thesp would join Hoult, Palmer in Summit's zombie pic

Exclusive: “Childrens Hospital” creator/star Rob Corddry is in final negotiations to join Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer in Summit Entertainment’s zombie pic “Warm Bodies.”

Jonathan Levine (“50/50”) is writing and directing the supernatural romancer, which is based on the novel by Isaac Marion.

Story follows an existentially-tormented zombie who falls for the girlfriend of one of his victims and decides to protect her from his brain-eating brethren as he begins to reconnect with his dormant humanity.

Hoult stars as R, a zombie who’s different from the rest of the undead, while Corddry will play M, the only other zombie like him … at first.

Bruna Papandrea (“Milk”) is producing through her Make Movies banner along with David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman via their Mandeville Films banner. Laurie Webb and Cori Shepherd Stern are exec producing. Summit’s Erik Feig and Gillian Bohrer will oversee the project for the studio. Production starts in Sept.

Corddry, who recently wrapped Lionsgate’s low-budget laffer “Rapturepalooza” and Focus/Mandate’s “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World,” next appears in The Weinstein Co’s “Butter,” which will make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Adult Swim recently picked up “Childrens Hospital” for a fourth season, which starts production Dec. 1.

Corddry is repped by WME and Principato-Young.
