The '80s comedy film will be titled 'Lisa Frankenstein'.

Zelda Williams is to direct her first feature film in the near future, which will be a romantic comedy about zombies.

There have been a small handful of rom-coms with zombies in the past ('Warm Bodies', 'Life After Beth', 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'), but none have really made waves on juggling the weirdness of basing a romantic comedy around the topic of the undead.

Sounding extremely passionate about the project, however, Williams might buck the trend and create something unique - even if it's something we might have seen before. But then again, how many action films with Chris Pratt must we endure?

She Tweeted: "I know Hollywood gets a bad rep for regurgitating sequels and remakes and reboots over and over and over… and yeah, it totally does that!

"But it’s also finally letting me make the most bonkers, wonderful zombie script I’ve ever read, and for that, I will be forever grateful!"

She also Tweeted news about the two main stars of her film, who are Kathryn Newton ('Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri', 'Pokemon Detective Pikachu') and Cole Sprouse ('Riverdale').

Diablo Cody ('Juno', 'Jennifer's Body') has written the script for the film.

'Lisa Frankenstein' will be set in 1989 and will follow an unpopular high schooler (Newton) who accidentally reanimates a handsome Victorian corpse during a lightning storm. She then attempts to rebuild him into the man of her dreams using the broken tanning bed in her garage. Sounds like a hoot!

Zelda Williams, daughter of the late comedy actor Robin Williams, has acted and lent her voice to numerous productions over the years, but 'Lisa Frankenstein' will be the very first feature film she will direct. She also revealed on Twitter that she hadn't planned on this being her first directorial adventure, but now that it's come to fruition, it's a "f*cking gift".

Filming for Zelda Williams' 'Lisa Frankenstein' will begin this summer.
