MTV News headed to Montreal, Canada to not only visit the zombie apocalypse but participate in it. Christina Garibaldi took a trip to the set of "Warm Bodies," the undead romance set to rekindle audiences' hearts this weekend.

On the set, Garibaldi even got to go full zombie, donning some ragged clothes and undead makeup to fit the part. Then to make for a more convincing member of the horde, she got some helpful advice from star Nicholas Hoult.

"The thing we are trying to stay clear of is overdoing it," Hoult said. "It's just like your body's real tired and heavy, just kind of slump around, you know, on your way back to the club, and your momentum is more carrying you than anything else."

Check out the video from the set visit above!

Jack the Giant Killer

Hollywood loves its remakes, and fairy tales are the easiest money of all. What child or adult in America isn't familiar with the story of Jack and the beanstalk, even if they're not clear on the specifics? Then again, the specifics can be largely invented based on whatever tired parent is telling the story to his kid: there are some beans, a beanstalk, some giants and a guy named Jack who fights them or tries to, at least.

In this regard, "Jack the Giant Killer" looks wholly familiar. The trailer opens with Nicholas Hoult as the titular Jack, palming a fistful of magic beans while a serious man tells him to be careful. Well, you know how it goes: the beans fall in some soil and water, then shoot up up thousands of feet into the sky, carrying Jack's house and the princess of the realm with it.

Nicholas HoultAnd just like that, the giants have met their match.

We brought you the news two days ago that "Jack the Giant Killer" had found three of its villainous leads in the form of Stanley Tucci, Bill Nighy and John Kassir. Now, Bryan Singer's next directorial effort has a leading man as well: none other than "X-Men: First Class" actor Nicholas Hoult.

Deadline reports that Hoult has been offered the role, and although negotiations are ongoing, the deal should close quickly. It's a big step forward for Hoult, who counts "About a Boy" as his most prominent movie role to date. Yes, he was the titular boy, and now he's a 6'3" giant slayer. The times, they are a-changing indeed!

Aaron JohnsonSome time has passed since we last heard an update on "Jack the Giant Killer," director Bryan Singer's forthcoming dark retelling of the classic "Jack and the Beanstalk" fairy tale.

When last we heard, "Kick-Ass" star Aaron Johnson was considered the front runner to play the titular Jack. That's still the case according to today's update, but the erstwhile Dave Lizewski better have his game face on — because he's not the only young actor in consideration for "Jack."

The Hollywood Reporter lists Johnson as a lead candidate for the role alongside actors Nicholas Hoult and Aneurin Barnard. Hoult is already on Singer's radar having played Beast in "X-Men: First Class," which Singer is producing. Read More...

Fans of post-apocalyptic adventures will soon get to enjoy a new offering from one of the genre's greats. "Mad Max" creator George Miller is very busy these days bringing together the fourth entry in that series, "Fury Road." We already know that Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron are the stars... but that's pretty much it.

Well not anymore. For starters, the cast is growing exponentially. "Clash of the Titans" actor Nicholas Hoult is now on board, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Zoe Kravitz (daughter of Lenny), Teresa Palmer ("The Sorcerer's Apprentice") and Adelaide Clemens ("X-Men Origins: Wolverine") are also "in various states of negotiations to join" as well. That's not the best part though. "Mad Max" fans: we now know some story. Read More...
