Deadlines: News roundup 5/13/09

Posted by Cory Casciato On May - 13 - 2009


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

It’s hard to call it news, since it went online last November, but it is the slowest zombie news day ever, so enjoy this interview with World War Z and Zombie Survival Guide author Max Brooks. (Rocket Llama World Headquarters)

There’s a big story on George A. Romero in the upcoming 30th anniversary issue of Fangoria. As a strange sneak preview, the author posted a meandering outtake of him talking with Romero about the Oscars over sushi. I’ve helpfully embedded the clip after the break. (Fangoria)

Finally, there’s an intriguing short film called Arbeit Für Alle (Full Employment in English) headed for the festival circuit. It’s about a man, desperate for work, who takes a job as an entry-level zombie hunter and it looks promising. Trailer after the break. (Quiet Earth)
