Dame (and what a dame she is…) Judi Dench, Sir Ian McKellen, and Gillian “X Files” Anderson are set to star in the zombie “costume drama” The Curse of the Buxom Strumpet. This is one movie I will not miss, as it involves three of my favorite British actors and zombies. (Metro UK)

If you’ve got up to six friends that love zombies, then you’ll be in for a great party when you buy The Walking Dead board game, which goes on sale later this year for about forty dollars. (MTV)

After the break, check out the latest teaser trailer for Dead Island and soak in the zombie killing joy mixed with a cool island breeze. (Den of Geek)

As if my earlier British zombie movie wasn’t enough for you undead fans, it seems that the zombie book Paul is Dead: The British Zombie Invasion, about the zombie Beatles taking the world by storm, is set for a mockumentary style movie adaptation. (Bloody Disgusting)

Goldilocks in Zombie Land got a small update this week and the crew behind the book alerted the fans that it will be on sale May 27 at Comicpalooza in Houston, Texas with a variant cover. It will be available from ComiXology after that. (Buy Zombie)

Paul W.S. Anderson, the man who brought us three pretty damn good Resident Evil movies and one great one, finally revealed the secret of his muse. He actually gets hours and hours of game play footage from kids playing the game from start to finish and uses that as inspiration. (Kotaku)

  1. Gillian Anderson is not British, she was born in Chicago.

  2. Zombie Shakespeare says:

    If you stand next to Judi Dench and Ian McKellan long enough, you become British through osmosis. It works with Maggie Smith too.
