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)

Zombies will invade Bollywood in the new film Shaadi of the Dead. Shaadi translates to “wedding”. I’m cautiously optimistic about a zombie dance number, but it worked for Thriller, so who knows? (Fangoria)

I love webcomics, and because of that love I’ve stumbled upon Zombie Waffe, which features incredible art and hilarious writing and is perfect for fans of the zombie action/comedy genres. Also it’s only at 41 pages as of now, so it’s easy to catch up on the whole series. (Buy Zombie)

The Inevitable Zombie Podcast episode 005 has arrived!

Posted by Johnathon Brock On December - 23 - 2010

Greetings, undead masses! Johnathon reporting in to unveil the latest episode of the Inevitable Zombie Podcast

Now there are several different ways to get the Inevitable Zombie Podcast.

Episode 005 – 10 directors that NEED to direct a zombie movie…

Hosts – Cory Casciato and Johnathon Brock

Run Time: 1 Hour 04 Minutes 03 Seconds

Show Notes

This week Cory and I discussed the top 10 directors who need to direct a zombie movie, but never have. Also, we wrapped up the 2010 year with a look back at what Cory was looking forward to, and what we are looking forward to in 2011. No real show notes because it’s a list show, and I don’t want to spoil the surprise of who we picked.

However, here is a link to Cory’s original post about his most wanted directors for a zombie project.

And here is a link to Cory’s 2010 most wanted and most anticipated zombie projects in general.

(Read both of them after you listen to the show…. or before… whatever)

One final note… This podcast isn’t too graphic, but it is labeled Not Safe For Work. We drop the f-bomb on more than one occasion and talk about some of the more graphic images of The Walking Dead in show and comic form, as well as some of the other things we discuss. Just a heads up for those of you listening at your work cubes—wear headphones.

Alright, that’s it, go listen to it and let us know what you think in the comments. Tell us what you’d like to see from us on future shows, make fun of my impressions, or ask some questions for next week’s show.
