So if you follow Bruce Campbell on twitter (and you should, he’s @GroovyBruce) then you know that earlier today he confirmed Evil Dead 4 is happening. That’s breaking news folks and hopefully you heard it here first.

Also we’ve got some details on Evil Dead 4. It’s going to be a quasi remake (in the vein of Evil Dead 2 hopefully) and will NOT be directed by Sam Raimi, but it is being directed by someone whom he (or at least his studio) trusts. (Quiet Earth)

When EA bought PopCap Games recently, the loveable zombies from Plants vs Zombies decided to send a note to their newest zombie victims. (Kotaku)

The woman who will be directing episode one of the new season of The Walking Dead answers a few questions. (Dread Central)

San Diego Comic Con, which is most undoubtedly the best comic con, will be the debut show for the new Walking Dead board game. (Bleeding Cool)

For those wondering if their old busted down pc from 2008 can run Dead Island, well you’re in luck, it probably can. Check out these system requirements just to make sure though. (Device Mag)

Learn how to rip content from Youtube to your hard drive by legally downloading Night of the Living Dead (it’s public domain armchair attorneys) and enjoying the show. (Information Week)

If you’re like me, you want to be really, really prepared for the zombie apocalypse. So why don’t you follow this guy’s move and build the ultimate zombie Armageddon survival shotgun so that you’re never worried about anything except running out of ammo. (The Art of Manliness)

If you’re looking for a good way to spend the next ten to fifteen minutes, here’s the entire set of pictures and video from season two of The Walking Dead that’s currently available. (Examiner)

Speaking of The Walking Dead, after the break check out this amazing fan made teaser trailer for season two. Kirkman and Gale Anne Hurd have actually confirmed this to be fan made, for all of you who doubt it. Let’s hope the creator ends up with a job at AMC. (Dread Central)

Milla Jovovich recently discussed some zombie related nightmares that have come from years of shooting Resident Evil movies. Maybe she’ll weigh in with her thoughts on Cory’s The Zombie Dream article. (Digital Spy)

There’s finally a proper trailer for Cuba’s newest export Juan of the Dead. Check it out after the break. (Slash Film)

So the amazing bonus pre-order content for Dead Island is going to be… a digital pdf of some of the game and concept art… I think it might be time to get off the island. (Kotaku)

In better gaming news, as per Valve’s challenge, within four hours enough users (roughly twenty thousand) beat the latest expansion for Left 4 Dead 2 and Valve is going to release the re-vamped map packs early. (Kotaku)

Frank Darabont is very, very talkative about this season of The Walking Dead, and seeing as how we’ve got another five months before we get to witness such an awesome television show I’m okay with that. (Daily Blam)

Well after a long run of good luck World War Z eventually had to be cursed as well. It seems that Matthew Fox and Ed Harris, the two most recent additions to the cast, are no longer going to be able to star in the film. (Vulture)

That Dead Island trailer that made the world go insane actually won the Gold Prize for Internet Film at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. Let’s hope the game delivers as much as the trailer did. (Kotaku)

OMG NEWS! It’s been a huge news weekend and with the E3 show going on there’s a lot to cover, so I’m going to split things up into a few groups at times. Also all videos, as always, are after the break, just so I don’t have to keep typing it.

There was a ton of good news that came out of the E3 show just these last couple of days.

The Walking Dead has also been tearing up the internet as season two moves into production.

There wasn’t a shortage of movie news this weekend either.

And to wrap things up with a little humor, that awesome CDC article about zombie preparedness (which we reported day one, because Cory is just that awesome) has become so popular that it actually crashed the CDC blog last week. (Your Daily News Fix)

After the break, check out the trailer for Ace the Zombie, about a recently infected member of the undead who’s fighting for his civil rights. (Dread Central)

The box art for Dead Island has finally been released after previous concepts were recalled due to graphic images. The new one is pretty graphic too but doesn’t have a zombie hanging from a tree. (Dread Central)

The Walking Dead is currently casting Hershel Greene, his daughter Maggie, and farmhand Otis for the new season of the popular zombie show. I guess that means season two takes place on Hershel’s farm. (Bloody Disgusting)

Dame (and what a dame she is…) Judi Dench, Sir Ian McKellen, and Gillian “X Files” Anderson are set to star in the zombie “costume drama” The Curse of the Buxom Strumpet. This is one movie I will not miss, as it involves three of my favorite British actors and zombies. (Metro UK)
