I Love Sarah Jane (and so does Tim Burton): A Zombie Love Story

One of the most talked about short films at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, I Love Sarah Jane is a wonderfully sweet (and messed-up) zombie love story.

Official synopsis: Jimbo is 13. All he can think about is one girl, Sarah Jane. And no matter what stands in his waybullies, violence, chaos, zombiesnothing is going to stop him from finding a way into her world.

Watch the film full-screen HERE.

Warning:

Strong Language and Zombies

It’s gorgeously shot, especially for a short film. I would watch a feature-length version, but in the meantime...

“Sarah Jane,” played by Mia Wasikowska, is now starring in Tim Burton’s live-action and CGI re-imagining of the Lewis Carroll classic Alice in Wonderland due out in 2010. Early additions to the cast include Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Matt Lucas from Shaun of the Dead in the role(s) of Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and Martin Sheen as ... well, “it’s unclear exactly what character he’ll be playing.”

See INF for early photos from the set and Slashfilm for more information on the film.

Who else would you like to see in this? What a fun movie to cast. And online chatter pegs Sheen as the Cheshire Cat. Personally, I think he’d also make a terrific zombie...
