Actor Jeffrey DeMunn, who plays Dale on The Walking Dead, is taking a short break between seasons to have a turn as Willy Loman in Death of a Salesman at the Old Globe Theater. No word yet as to whether or not the script calls for a zombie apocalypse. (Sign On San Diego)

Telltale games won’t disclose the property, but they’ve said in a recent interview that they are working on a game “based on a just-launched property from the TV and comic book world whose popularity is changing life as some know it.” So let’s just say they’re making The Walking Dead into a video game and call it a day. (Kotaku)

I don’t know what to make of this video. It’s some kind of active reality game that uses motion control to put you standing outside of a holding tank full of zombies, locked into some kind of staring contest. I’m assuming it’s a tech demo of some kind, but it looks very cool and I’d love to see a practical application. (Randommization)

Well it looks like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies just went back into development hell. Mike White has reportedly stepped off the project due to previous obligations with HBO. I honestly can’t say I’m sad to hear the news as I felt that Mike White wasn’t right to direct the film, but I’m sad that the movie is once again on hiatus. (Deadline)

I stumbled upon this weird little trailer (after the break) for The Zombie Farm, which looks like a cross between horror, mad science, and government conspiracy. You be the judge. (Buy Zombie)

I’ve got some game play footage for Dead Space on the iPhone, and it honestly looks very well done. I’ll probably pick this up at some point. (Kotaku)
