The writers of Zombieland 2 are chock full of ideas: adding new characters, following Abigail Breslin’s character as she grows up and maybe giving Tallahassee a girlfriend are just a few of the possible items on the menu for the sequel. Oh, and it’s all going to be 3D. (MTV Movies Blog)

Shooting of the pilot episode of the TV adaptation of the Walking Dead starts May 15 in Atlanta, Georgia. Does this mean it’s been cast already? I want details, damn it! (Bloody Disgusting)

There’s a big ReAnimator reunion convention happening May 21-23 in Los Angeles. So far, Stuart Gordon, Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton, Robert Sampson and Dennis Paoli are set to appear. (Dread Central)

Speaking of ReAnimator, there’s a new movie coming soon called Exquisite Corpse about a doctor who comes up with a serum to revive the dead. Naturally, he uses it on his just-killed girlfriend. Just as naturally, it has some issues, like the fact that it only lasts a day and each time it’s used a little of the subject’s humanity is lost. Trailer after the break. (Dread Central)

Buy the corpse-stealing comedy I Sell the Dead (review here) on DVD, get a free forty-page comic as a bonus. (Bloody Disgusting)

Players of the iPhone’s FPS Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies will get a new map pack tomorrow called “Verruckt.” It’s set in an insane asylum and costs $5. (Kotaku)

A blogger ponders the all-important question: can the freezing cold and snow stop (or at least slow) the zombie apocalypse? (A World on Fire)

It looks as if PC gamers looking to shoot zombies in space with Dead Space 2 will be out of luck. No PC version for you! (Blues News)

Some wacky movie pirates in the Dominican Republic got creative with the faux movie poster for the Left 4 Dead campaign “Dead Air.” Wonder if the movie inside was the Corbin Bernsen-directed zombie flick of the same name? (Kotaku)
