Good news! The World War Z movie is still on and Brad Pitt is attached to star. Also, Zombie Survival Guide and ZSG: Recorded Attacks have also been optioned. It’s a franchise! Supposedly the first one (WWZ) is still being directed by Marc Forster and is coming fall 2012. We’ll see. (MTV Movies Blog)

Before settling on Las Vegas as a setting for Dead Rising‘s sequel, the original plan was to set Dead Rising 2 in Disneyland. Also, you can download Dead Rising: Case Zero on Xbox Live (only) August 31 for $5. (Kotaku)

The official website of Resident Evil: Afterlife is live. I thought it had already launched, but I don’t have the patience to go through my news posts to find it at the moment.
