Finally we’ve got the news everyone has been waiting for. It seems that Frank Darabont was indeed fired from The Walking Dead, and the rumor mill (which is currently still anonymous sources) says it’s because of his difficulty to work with AMC regarding show notes and budget discussions. (FEARnet)

World War Z caught some bad publicity this week when it was revealed that the movie wouldn’t really follow the spirit of the best selling book. Instead it would be more of an action adventure film centered entirely around Brad Pitt’s character and not multiple stories from the battlefront. (The Celebrity Cafe)

Ving Rhames, who is by far one of the best zombie killers on film, will once again be thrust in the middle of an undead outbreak in the upcoming Asylum production Zombie Apocalypse. (Dread Central)

While it erupted onto the scene with an immediate fan base and a possible movie deal, the actual Dead Island video game has been getting some lackluster early reviews lately. Let’s hope for the best. (Kotaku)

Every now and then people make me realize just how possible it would be to survive a zombie outbreak. One such person posted a detailed write up on how to make your own MRE (Meals, Ready to Eat) packages for less than half the price of those stale military grade goods. (Lifehacker)

We stumbled across this awesome trailer for Zombie 108 and had to share it with you. It’s a Japanese zombie flick that looks like it’s part 28 Days Later, part Battle Royale, and very, very cool. Check it out after the break. (Buy Zombie)

  1. Hopefully Ving will be more Dawn of the Dead and less Day of the Dead.
