It looks like Dead Rising, one of my favorite zombie games of all time (review here), is set to become a  live-action movie directed and co-written by Keiji Inafune, the same man behind the original game. See the unsubtitled Japanese trailer, embedded after the break. (Kotaku)

Speaking of the franchise, new info on Dead Rising 2 confirms you will be able to combine things via duct tape to make new things. So, kayak paddle + chainsaws + duct tape = paddlesaw! (Kotaku)

Learn more about the faux documentary Portrait of a Zombie, about an Irish family coming to grips with the zombification of their son, in this interview with director Bing Bailey. Also, Bing is an awesome name. (Reel Loop)
