No one quite knows why, but there in other Gemma news (we love Gemma news)… newspaper reports in Australia say that she is the directors choice in a ‘zombie rockumentary’ penned by Jimmy Jack, who penned Gemma’s big screen debut, The Black Balloon.
She joins the likes of Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin on the writer’s wish list in, Zombie: Sex, Brains and Rock n’ Roll a mockumentary about a rock band made up of zombies who struggle to control the urge to eat their groupies.
Jack wants Gemma to star as the Tambourine Girl, the love interest for the zombie front-man.
“The love story is kind of interesting, he’ll be all kind of romantic, saying things like she’s making him feel alive again,” he says.
