Every now and then a trailer comes along that makes us here at the IZA remember why we love zombie movies. Osombie is a movie about the re-animated corpse of Osama Bin Laden and the mission wherein a group of military operatives go to kill him, again. Check it out after the break and get ready for what will be an amazing ride. (First Showing)

It looks like the fine folks over at Machinima have teamed up with Lionsgate and FEARnet to bring season two of Bite Me, the zombie webseries, back to life. (c21 media)

It looks like Tom Savini is really pushing to play the coveted role of The Governor when the role inevitably emerges on The Walking Dead, but he might have some stiff competition ahead of him. Personally I’m hoping he gets the role. (MTV)

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.

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)

We don’t usually re-post certain types of articles, but this amazing piece on losing weight and eating healthy based on tips from this season of The Walking Dead was just begging to be shared with all undead fans everywhere. (Shape)

It looks like that sweet knife set that Carl found during episode one of The Walking Dead will now be an official (although limited edition) apocalypse survival kit by the folks over at Gerber Knives. It comes with a hefty price tag, but can you afford not to pay it? (Digital Trends)

Speaking of surviving the long term zombie apocalypse, these new decades lasting light bulbs from Samsung will certainly keep things bright in your darkest hours, provided you’ve got access to a generator or some solar panels I guess. (Engadget)

I didn’t think anything would top last year’s winner of the Zombie Safe House competition open to designers from all over, but this years winner really made me wish that the Vagabond portable zombie safe house was a real thing. If nothing else it would make for some awesome camping trips. (Zombie Safe House)

The rumor mill is stating that Jameson’s attorneys may advise her to settle. (Chicago Tribune)

Popular zombie manga Rain For the Dead is headed to the big screen. It’s actually a cool premise. In a world overrun with the dead, the only safe time to be outside is during a rainstorm, when your human scent is masked to those that would prefer to eat you. (Comic Book Movie)

Techland, the development team behind the amazingly popular game Dead Island, has filed a trademark for the name Dead World. I think we all know what that means. (PlayStation Universe)

So the Evil Dead sequel that’s actually a reboot and written by someone who has NO BUSINESS writing horror is going to be about a drug intervention and apparently a kid will just “read the book of the dead” because kids know how to read ancient forgotten text.
