A daily roundup of all the undead news that shambles into view… Bookmark the home page or add the RSS feed to your reader for your daily dose of walking dead. Got news tips? E-mail me at cory.casciato[AT]

On the eve of Zombieland‘s release there is a buttload of press hitting for it. An interview with Emma Stone, and this interview with Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrleson, or this interview with director Ruben Flesicher. There’s plenty more out there (I actually misplaced another interview with Fleischer somewhere in my bazillion bookmarks…) go find it if that doesn’t satiate you… (Various)

Robert Kirkman explains how the Walking Dead is going to come to TV. (Splash Page)

George Romero himself is tackling a zombie novel called The Living Dead which will explain a huge amount of backstory to his mythos, including the full capabilities of the zombie. (The Guardian)

Halloween in New York should be fun, what with the Plants vs. Zombies themed troupe marching in this year’s Village Halloween Parade. In NYC and like dressing as a zombie? Or a plant? You should join them. I would if I could. (Kotaku)

So that Resident Evil 5 director’s cut is apparently actually an “alternative edition” with PS3 wand control and some new stuff. Anyway, clip after the break. Kotaku also has some pics of some groovy action figures of the main characters that nerdy collectors will cream over, no doubt. (Kotaku)

Quiet Earth scored a trailer for The Revenant, a buddy pic with a zombie/vampire hybrid type thing called, not too surprisingly, a revenant. Looks pretty cool. And its trailer is embedded for you after the break. (Quiet Earth)

Online video network Crackle is launching a zombie web series with Jon Heder (you might know him as Napoleon Dynamite) called Woke Up Dead. There’s a preview after the break. (Dread Central)

Atlanta people, you can zombie walk Sunday, October 4.
