Kristen Stewart likely to star in a Zombie movie?

According to ReelzChannel, the rights to the book of Carrie Ryan's young adult zombie novel "The Forest of Hands and Teeth" have been sold to Seven Star Pictures the studio, the studio behind Kristen Stewart's upcoming movie K-11.

Rumor has it that Kristen Stewart might star in the movie. There are no confirmations yet from Seven Star pictures or Kristen Stewart. Read the report from Reelz Channel below:

The novel, which was published in March by Delacorte Books for Young Readers, has been an instant hit with critics and book bloggers. It tells the story of Mary, a girl living in a small village bordered by a fence to keep out the Unconsecrated -- savage zombies intent on destroying the town and everyone in it. Add a little bit of romance and a gutsy female heroin, and you've got a teen thriller to rival Twilight.

Rumor has it that an A-list actress is tipped to star in the movie (could it be Kristen Stewart?), and a first draft of the screenplay is being written as soon as possible. With the popularity of vampires, werewolves, and all things supernatural currently dominating the literary world, it seems book adaptations are the way to go. What could be next? Our money's on Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments trilogy. Somewhere, somebody will be closing a movie deal on that one soon.
