Well for everyone wondering what happened with the whole Frank Darabont/AMC debacle over The Walking Dead, your questions are sort of answered from one side of things. Sam Witwer, of Being Human fame, gives a video interview (after the break) where he goes into detail about plot ideas for season two that were scrapped due to budgetary issues and says some pretty heated, angry things about AMC and their decision to remove Darabont from the show. Darabont later confirms this story in a letter to the editors. Witwer was the tank zombie in the pilot episode, although his role went uncredited at the time. (Ain’t It Cool News)

JAKKS Pacific, the company famous for those horrible plug and play tv games based on your favorite franchises, is back at it and plan to release a series of shooter style games based on The Walking Dead later this year. I think at this point I can safely say the franchise is getting a little over saturated with unnecessary products. (Kotaku)

With production winding down, we’ve got some more concrete and specific plot details for the fifth entry into the Resident Evil film series. Also, they’ve decided to call it Re5ident Evil: Retribution, which sounds horrible. Horrible. (Bloody Disgusting)

After the break, you have to check out this odd “camera pointed at tv” clip from Class3, the upcoming zombie MMO which will be an Xbox 360 exclusive. If nothing else, this video at least gives some confidence and assurance that the game is actually being made, and so far it looks as good as the previous hype. (Buy Zombie)

  1. Ahhh… I see what they did there. They put a 5 where the ‘s’ goes. That’s really clever. I wasn’t planning on seeing this in theaters, but now I’m sold. (what font best expresses sarcasm?)
