Left 4 Dead has been made into a cool live action “choose your own adventure” style game on Youtube. Check it out after the break and see if you can survive. (The Escapist)

Maggie, the the spec script that promises an  innovative and surprisingly new take on the zombie genre as well as a blueprint for making better zombie movies on a lower budget, has finally been purchased after an impressive bidding war. (Deadline)

We’ve got a few details on “The Curea zombie film being shot by local students at the University of Miami. (The Oxford Press)

With every bit of good news for World War Z it seems like there is a mountain of bad news that comes with it. After yesterday’s news that a studio has stepped up to co-fund the film with Paramount, it seems like that offer comes with a hefty catch. John R. Leonetti, director of such flops as Mortal Kombat: Annihilation and The Butterfly Effect 2 will be on a short list to direct the film.
