The AMC adaptation of The Walking Dead got white-hot today as production officially started. We got the first look at the Walkers (i.e. zombies) and they look awesome. There’s also a behind-the-scenes video, which you can find embedded below. That’s all from the official Walking Dead blog at amctv.com, which seems is a good place to watch for news about the series.

It’s not the only place, though, since elsewhere we discover that Addy Miller has joined the cast, presumably as Sophia, the young daughter of Carol. (The Walking Dead Poscast)

Also added to the cast is Linds Edwards, playing a character named Leon Bennet. Uh, who? I don’t recall that one and neither does the Walking Dead wiki. Looks like the TV show will have some new characters. (IMDB)

You didn’t think you were done with George Romero interviews, did you? Because they aren’t done with you. Romero speaks about his favorite among his films, his favorite part of the filmmaking process and more. It’s a solid interview.  (Icon vs. Icon)

What does Paul W.S. Anderson have to say about the making of Resident Evil: Afterlife? You don’t have to wonder, you can read all about it. (FEARnet)

Can’t wait to see REC 2 in its entirety? Well, there’s a clip from it embedded below for you! Me, I hate spoilers and watching films out of order, so I am going to wait. (Bloody Disgusting)

Tonight at 7 p.m. PST, the cast and crew of the awesome zombie audio drama podcast We’re Alive (review herefeature here)  is doing a live video teleconference.

Learn all about Robin Becker and her book Brains: A Zombie Memoir, which tells a story from the zombie’s point of view. (The Zombie Nation)

Someone decided to ask Charlotte, North Carolina’s local zombie experts why zombies are popular. The results are mildly amusing at times. (C-Ville)
