A daily roundup of all the undead news that shambles into view… Got news tips? E-mail me at cory.casciato[AT]gmail.com.

The Corbin Bernsen (LA Law! Fuck yeah!) helmed zombie feature Dead Air is looking for distribution at Cannes. The movie is set in a radio station during a zombie outbreak (like Pontypool!), shares a name with one of Left 4 Dead‘s campaigns and stars Bill Moseley. Still not sold? Hit the jump below and find a teaser trailer. (Dread Central)

New details emerge about Deadlands 2:  Trapped, a microbudget zombie epic sequel to the original Deadlands: The Rising (which gives me some urgency to see the original). Details include production stills, screening dates, the troubled search for distribution and what it’s like to make a full-bore zombie epic on a $6,000 budget (spoiler: it’s hard). (Fangoria)

Are you ready for yet another upcoming entry in the Nazi zombie subgenre? This one will be called The 4th Reich and it is revealed via a feature on The Soldier, the short that inspired it. Since I believe this particular subgenre may be cursed, I am not getting my hopes up. (Fangoria)

The Dead Rising 2 feast continues as Kotaku weighs in with some speculation about possible game mechanics, such as the desire for videography instead of the first game’s still photography. (Kotaku)

Have a Wii? Never played Resident Evil? Or maybe want to play it again? You are in luck, a port is being released with all of the original’s (actually, the Gamecube remake’s) clunky controls and murderous camera angles intact! Joy. (Kotaku)

To celebrate its one-year anniversary, Lost Zombies is sponsoring a 24-hour writing challenge on May 1. (Fangoria)
