Quarantined creator Michael Moreci dropped me a line to let me know about a contest he’s running. Basically, all you have to do is buy at least three of the six issues on comiXology (which are a very respectable .99 cents apiece) and send the proof of purchase to Michael. They’ll draw a winner and the winner gets a custom piece of artwork and a hard copy of the book.

After the break, check out this amazing public service announcement which is secretly (it’s not a secret) an animation test for The Goon animated movie, with a star studded voice cast. I’m seriously hoping someone picks this up. (The Flick Cast)

Some lucky London film makers will get a chance to work on World War Z when production hits the UK now that the shoots in Scotland have wrapped. (This Is London)

Here’s  a nice little interview on how zombies are invading Bollywood and Indian culture through movies and comic books. (Bollywood Hungama)

Director Jonathan Levine sits down to discuss Warm Bodies and what he hopes the film will accomplish, which is better than what it probably will accomplish, which is a Twilight meets Night of the Living Dead monstrosity that makes teenage girls no longer fear the undead. (Indie Wire)

Bruce Campbell dishes (through Twitter) about the Evil Dead remake which at this time does not feature an “Ash” character. What. The. Fuck. “All involved love the new approach” my ass. I’m involved, as a blogger and possible ticket buyer, and I ain’t buyin’ it. (Dread Central)

Eaten By Zombies, a collectible card game based on the zombie apocalypse, has gone WAY over the mark on it’s Kickstarter campaign and will be more than fully funded by the upcoming deadline. Good job guys, the game looks great. (Buy Zombie)

After the break, check out the first teaser for REC 3: Genesis which breaks away from the found footage approach and tells how the virus got started, at least in the foreign universe. No telling what the US version of Quarantine 3 will be about. (Fangoria)

We’ve got another image from the upcoming comic book to film adaptation R.I.P.D. This time it’s Ryan Reynolds and the pure awesome that is Jeff Bridges strutting their stuff. (Dread Central)
