British actor, Nick Hoult, is back on our screens this February with his zombie film with a twist, ‘Warm Bodies’. His on the promotional tour right now, proving that there is love after death.
Shooting into the spotlight playing Marcus Brewer in the film adaptation of Nick Horby’s novel ‘About a Boy’ and later making a name for himself in British TV teen drug fuelled drama Skins, Nick Hoult was deservedly nominated for the BAFTA Rising Star award in 2010. This nomination came off the back of Tom Ford’s debut film ‘A Single Man’, in which he played the gay love interest of George Falconer, a middle-aged English college teacher played by Colin Firth. Although he didn’t bag it, that hasn’t stopped him landing roles in some of the most successful films of the last few years… something that shows no signs of changing.
This February sees the release of Nick’s next film ‘Warm Bodies’, starring Teresa Palmer, Dave Franco (the younger brother of James Franco) and John Malkovich and directed by Jonathan Levine, who filmed ‘All The Boys Love Mandy Lane’ and ‘50/50’. It follows the story of a zombie that becomes involved with the girlfriend of one of his victims, putting into motion a sequence of events that could change the living dead forever… not your usual Zombie styled flick, right?
Hoult is now on the promotional tour of the film and looking damn dapper doing it, too, wearing Dolce
He’s also talked about how it was to work with the highly respected John Malkovich, saying:
"it's intimidating doing scenes with him, he's a fantastic actor. But a very nice guy and easy to work with. Just fun to watch, you know? And fun to see how he changes scenes up and brings a good energy to set."
This promo couldn’t have come at a better time as the young actor could do with being kept busy, seeing as rumours of his split with actress Jennifer Lawrence as doing the rounds.
Also, coming up from Hoult is Bryan Singer’s ‘Jack the Giant Slayer’ and a new instalment into the cult Mad Max films ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’.
Warm Bodies is in cinemas 1st February.
