Here’s yet another awesome interview from Robert Kirkman at Comic Con where he discusses The Walking Dead, Marvel Zombies, and a thankfully avoided crossover between the two. (Comic Book Resources)

Actor Samn Wright (that’s not a typo, his name is “Samn”) has created the Slaughterhouse Opera, a zombie apocalypse themed rock show, which is performing now at a few local clubs in Kansas City. (Kansas City Star)

For the starstruck readers of the IZA, we’ve got some pics of Brad Pitt on the set of World War Z. (Celebuzz)

This month, Call of Duty: Black Ops will be further cashing in on the zombie craze by releasing an all undead expansion called Rezurrection. It’ll cost a little over $10. (Dread Central)

It seems like Paramount is in talks with Alexandre Aja, who directed the very, very awesome horror flick High Tension, and the less awesome remake of The Hills Have Eyes, to help re-make Pet Cemetary, which will have a new script written by Matthew Greenburg, who also wrote 1408. The talent is there, let’s hope the rest follows suit. (Shock Till You Drop)
