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)

After the break, check out a sneak peek at the upcoming mid season premiere of The Walking Dead in February. This is going to be a good year, and The Walking Dead is most definitely a reason for that. (Dread Central)

It looks like Asylum, who have brought us amazing straight to video knock offs like Transmorphers and Alien vs. Hunter, are going to give us what we really want and release Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies on DVD right before Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter hits theaters this year. I think I’ll save $20 and stick with the zombies. Alright, I’ll see both. (Dread Central)

Well Brad Pitt isn’t the only one bringing big zombie dollars to international locations. The Zombie King, which will star Corey Feldman and Edward Furlong in a thrilling adventure of undead…adventure, will premiere in London in August. (This is Somerset)

It looks like the upcoming indie hit A Little Bit Zombie is set to invade the Swiss territories for the 18th annual Victoria Film Festival this year. (Times Colonist)

The team behind Project Zomboid has arisen from their setback earlier last year when weeks worth of development were lost during a robbery and after the break you can see two new videos of their improved lighting and carpentry engine. This is going to be a great game when it’s done. (PC Gamer)

Speaking of games, there’s a new zombie game based on a childhood classic for those of us about 30 or older. The Men Who Wear Many Hats are working to bring us the Organ Trail, where you try to escape the zombie apocalypse (and hopefully typhoid and broken axles) while en route to a safe destination. Check out their Kickstarter page to donate. (Wired)

Happy New Year zombie maniacs! Johnathon and Cory here ready to bring you another great year of undead news, reviews, and all the best information that those brain eating bastards have to offer. I’m not big on New Year’s posts so I’ll just say hello, welcome the old readers and the new readers alike, and with that in mind let’s get to the news!

Author Greg Lamberson announced recently that his third zombie novella Carnage Road, about two motorcycle gang members who take their final ride during the last days of the zombie apocalypse, will be released this April. (Horror Year Book)

After it was announced last year there wasn’t a lot of information about The Walking Dead board game that dropped this past holiday season. Well here’s an in depth review of what looks to be a pretty damn good evening if you’ve got three friends. (Comic Book Movie)

After the break, check out this video of slingshot guru Joerg Sprave showing off his latest beauty which is equipped with a few lethal add-ons for when you need to kill a zombie with a slingshot and run out of rocks or ball bearings. (TechnaBob)

Well it looks like, according to Brad Pitt, World War Z will be distributed as a trilogy of films should the initial movie do well. Personally I’m not a huge fan of the changes from the book that are being made but since it’s a new year I’ll remain cautiously optimistic. (L.A. Times)

We can thank the fine people over at Focus Films for picking up Juan of the Dead for US theater and digital distribution sometime in April this year. (Shadowlocked)

In some breaking news, it looks like Lily Collins (yes, the daughter of Phil Collins) will play the lead role of Mia in the Evil Dead reboot. Mia is being described as the “Ash-like character” as well as the character who, as described in earlier news, is at the cabin for drug detox, which explains why no one believes her when she starts noticing the undead attacks on the cabin. (Bloody Disgusting)

We’re not one to spam contests here at the IZA, but AMC is giving away the Hyundai Tuscon that Shane drove during season two of The Walking Dead. As usual, you’re going to have to give out personal information, but you can enter once a day and it’s a pretty slick car honestly. (Torque News)

If you happen to have an extra $80 lying around after the holidays you can pick up a glow in the dark crowbar for easily smashing zombies or breaking into safe houses after the undead apocalypse. (Digital Trends)

Sometimes making a zombie movie can be a bigger financial disaster than expected, especially if you try to cheat on your taxes. That was the case for one director who now owes millions of dollars. (DesMoines Register)

It was announced recently that The Walking Dead graphic novels are dominating the annual New York Times bestseller lists. (CNN)

It looks like the owners of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid franchise are getting ready to sue the living daylights out of Antarctic Press for their Diary of a Zombie Kid novel. Hopefully the parody argument will still hold up because this is a ridiculous lawsuit. (Paid Content)

It looks like the fine folks behind the REC franchise have licensed their property to the video game world but not in a way we’d hope for. The first REC game which will be a first person shooter will debut next year on the smart phone (android, iOS) devices for about $3. (Bloody Disgusting)

You’ve probably seen this movie across all the torrent sites perfectly legal streaming movie services in the past year or so, but indie UK hit Zombie Driftwood is still looking for US distribution. Check out the trailer after the break. (Dread Central)

After the break, check out the teaser trailer for Night of the Living Dead: Resurrection which aims to be a “companion piece” to the original classic film rather than an attempt at a reboot or sequel. (Dread Central)

David Fincher drops a short comment this week that The Goon movie is still in his caring arms and will hopefully find some money next year. For those that missed it, you can see the test trailer after the break. (Dread Central)

The entire 9 minute Left 4 Dead fan film is now online and you should drop everything you’re doing and check it out below. (Kotaku)

We’ve got some fresh screen caps from Nazis at the Center of the Earth and I think this is shaping up to be a fine, fine historical look at post World War 2 developments. (Dread Central)

Here’s some impressive screenshots and a new trailer for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City which will hopefully hit shelves early next year. (Buy Zombie)

Zombie Godfather George A. Romero sent in his personal letter of support to the fundraiser to save the iconic location used during the filming of Night of the Living Dead. It’s good to see the original creator support what I feel is a worthwhile cause. (The Republic)

Every other piece of news I have today is a video, and you can catch them all after the break.

Alpha Girl, the latest indie title from Image comics, looks like a fun filled zombie killing adventure and it’s set in the 1980s so I’m already on board the nostalgia train. (Comic Book Resources)

We’ve got some very early details for the upcoming Dead Rising 3 and so far it’s shaping up to be yet another stellar entry in the series that you’ll inevitably get bored with two hours in and just spend your time killing zombies while ignoring the missions entirely. (InEntertainment)

We’ve got some new details for the PS3 exclusive zombie game The Last of Us which not only looks awesome, but is being developed by Naughty Dog, the creative team who brought us Crash Bandicoot for all of you old people that still remember the original PlayStation. (Venture Beat)

Check out this awesome interview with Steve Niles, the creator of the graphic novel Remains, which is quickly approaching its small screen release date that Niles also produced. (Dread Central)

After the break, be sure to check out the latest trailer for ParaNorman which is shaping up to be next year’s heavy hitter in the animated film category. (Dread Central)

Author Jay Bonansinga chimes in about working on The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor with creator Robert Kirkman and finally getting a book to superstar status in this nice interview. (Doings Clarendon Hills)

If you’re a fan of text based video games or choose your own adventure then you HAVE to pick up Zombie Exodus on the iOS. It looks incredible! (Okay, not “looks” incredible, since it’s text, but you know what I mean.) (PR Web)

After the break, check out episode two of the new webseries Resident Evil: First Hour. (Dread Central)

Milla Jovovich wishes us a merry Christmas from the set of Resident Evil: Retribution in this fun clip after the break. (Dread Central)

Saving the best for last, check out this trailer for I Survived a Zombie Holocaust which looks like Tropic Thunder for the zombie movie genre. Seriously I think this will be campy and poorly made but hilarious, so keep it on your radar. (Quiet Earth)

It looks like Anchor Bay has released the cover art and release details for the African based zombie flick The Dead on DVD and Blu-Ray. Look for it on Feburary 14 and plan a special Valentine’s Day treat. (Horror Year Book)

The popular (if you live in Japan) manga Life is Dead, about a young man infected with the zombie virus who is deemed unemployable due to his condition, is headed to the silver screen (again, if you live in Japan) sometime next year. (Anime News Network)

There’s a bit of buzz about the upcoming zombie drama The Returned which spins a unique picture of the idea of a cure for the zombie disease. The film is currently in pre production so we’ll keep you informed with any news. (Quiet Earth)

There’s a lot of mystery shrouding the new PS3 exclusive The Last Of Us. It seems to be about a zombie or zombie like apocalypse based around a plant virus. There’s no official press release yet but it will debut at the upcoming Video Game Awards show so we’ll let you know something when we know something. (Metro UK)

After the break, check out the teaser for the upcoming zombie webseries The Lynchfield Stops which centers around a delivery truck courier who still has a job to do even though the world is crawling with bloodthirsty zombies. (Bloody Disgusting)

Square Enix will publish the upcoming action rpg All Zombies Must Die which will be available for the Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and good old personal computer in 2012. (The Controller Online)

For everyone that’s been hating this season of The Walking Dead (we know who you are, and we don’t like you) you should know that the season finale finished with almost seven million viewers, and has maintained a six million viewer average throughout the season, blowing away cable drama records. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

“You got your steampunk in my zombie movie!” is a cry that will be shouted across the globe when Cherie Priest’s novel Boneshaker is brought to the big screen courtesy of Cross Creek Productions. (Film School Rejects)

After the break, check out episode one of the new webseries Resident Evil: First Hour which is a prequel miniseries detailing the events that led up to the Raccoon City incident that took place during Resident Evil. It looks good so far. (FEARnet)
