ROMCOM ZOM -- Romantic Comedy with Zombies

When Topher Grace toured Philly last month with “Take Me Home Tonight” co-star Theresa Palmer, he gushed at her in-demand status in Hollywood. .

“She too modest to say it, but she’s one of the hottest things in town,” he said.

The attractive Aussie (also in “I Am Number Four”) didn’t feel so hot -- she’d just had two George Miller projects (“Justice League” and a “Mad Max” sequel) blow up back home in Australia.

Now, however, she’s just been cast in a zombie movie that plays like rom-com riff on “Shaun of the Dead,” says the Hollywood Reporter.
