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)

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)

McFarlane toys recently unveiled the first series of their Walking Dead toy line based on the tv show rather than the comic book. I’ve got to say so far I’m liking them more than the comic book line released earlier this year. (Bloody Disgusting)

In local news (if you live in Scotland) the Dundee city council said, after prodding by a local resident, that unlike other cities recently mentioned in the news, if the threat of a zombie or vampire attack becomes a possible circumstance, the city would draft official plans to combat the problem. (STV.tv News)

While it’s mainly an interview about his latest masterpiece Super Dinosaur, Robert Kirkman also talks about The Walking Dead and how his children play into that story in this interview. (Wired)

We might have a long wait, but at least it’s official that Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges will be bringing us R.I.P.D. (based on the comic book series) in 2013. (Dread Central)

It looks like Greene’s farm is finally fully stocked as it was announced earlier that actors (with good science fiction backgrounds) have been cast to play Hershel Greene and his daughter Maggie (who will be a love interest for our favorite little courier Glenn) on season two of The Walking Dead. (Dread Central)

After the break, check out the first five minutes of the latest zombie flick Dead Genesis, which looks pretty good, with a dark sadness that we fell in love with during the Dead Island trailer. (Bloody Disgusting)

You may remember that last week we posted a new story about the CDC giving tips on zombie defense preparation. Well that story has blown up big time on the popularity scale, and the man responsible for it decided to say a few words. (Boston.com)

The Ron Tonkin family of auto dealerships decided to spice things up a little bit in an effort to boost sales by inviting a full scale zombie apocalypse into their business. (Oregon Live)

While they’re not exactly NECA, Hong Kong toymakers over at Hot Toys have made quite a good looking representation of Alice, the Resident Evil character portrayed by Milla Jovovich, and it will be available later this year. (Kotaku)

Speaking of toys (and NECA for that matter) an early look at the prototype for the Evil Dead 2 Ash figurine is now available. (Dread Central)

After the break, check out ten minutes of actual game play for the upcoming internet overnight phenomenon that is Dead Island. I’ll admit this video looks pretty damn good. (Topless Robot)

Well, the PlayStation Network might be undergoing some problems these days, but that doesn’t mean they’re not pumping out great games. Dead Block is a defense building game where you’re constructing a barrier against the undead. Check out the trailer after the break. (PlayStation LifeSyle)

Emma Bell, the beloved sister from The Walking Dead that… well the one that didn’t make it, (seriously, if you haven’t seen the show by now, what are you doing here?) gives a pretty nice interview about her time on the show. (Den of Geek)

Speaking of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman delivers another slam dunk interview that’s amazing and chock full of spoilers for those of you that haven’t come around to reading the comics yet. (AV Club)

Infinite Kung-Fu is a comic about zombies and Kung-Fu. It’s also 464 pages. However you can read 250 of those pages for free, right now! (io9)

This review of Dylan Dog goes beyond the movie itself to discuss the similarities, and what was left out, from its Italian comic book counterpart. There’s a lot of spoilers as well so beware. (Fangoria)

After the break, check out the trailer and preview episode for Lego Zombie Invasion, a stop motion series that was created by a fifteen year old kid. (Buy Zombie)

Saving the best news for last, I just want to inform everyone that on June 3 there will be a “zombie furry convention” in Quebec. That is all. (Buy Zombie)

We’ve got some photos and details for The Dead Must Die, a new webseries premiering on DailyMotion. (MovieWeb)

I usually try not to just re-post articles that aren’t breaking news, but this piece about the history of zombies on film and their evolution over time is actually really interesting. (The Film Pilgrim)

We’ve got some casting details that show off a b-grade star studded ensemble that will come together for Zombex, the zombie musical. Even if it is strikingly similar to Dead Rising 2, it’s got Corey Feldman so I’m in. (Dread Central)

After a few failed attempts by McFarlane to produce a quality action figure, toy giant NECA has obtained exclusive rights to produce figures based on the horror classic The Evil Dead. (Dread Central)

We spoke a while back about Night of the Little Dead, an indie film starring Adam Savage, Bill Moseley, and Penn (of Penn and Teller) Jillette. Well after the break we’ve got a teaser trailer that shows a lot of promise. (Bloody Disgusting)

We’ve got EVEN MORE pictures from the upcoming Walking Dead toy line, and Rick Grimes looks absolutely fantastic. (Buy Zombie)

Stephen Schlozman, MD and author of The Zombie Autopsies, gives an interesting look into just exactly why we fear the undead. (Kotaku)

David Von Ancken, who directed episodes of Heroes, Memphis Beat, The Vampire Diaries, The Shield, and OZ is set to direct the pilot episode of the new CW zombie teen drama Awakening. Getting a guy who directed a lot of bad canceled shows and one good one (I won’t say which one, and yes, I know that The Vampire Diaries is still on, and that’s a shame) might not be the star power play you’re hoping for, CW. (Bloody Disgusting)

Now there will be no question of what your loved ones should do after you’ve become a member of the undead. The new ZombAlert identifiers give them the option of attempting to cure you, or finishing you quickly. I endorse this product and plan to buy one. (Buy Zombie)

The Dead, a zombie film that’s been making the festival circuit for some time now, has finally picked up distribution through Starz/Anchor Bay. This is actually good news because that means it will hit Netflix instant watch and On Demand early on, giving it a wider audience. (Shock Till You Drop)

Worst Case Scenario was a Nazi zombie film that unfortunately never saw the light of day. It’s been partially resurrected though in the form of Frankenstein’s Army which will borrow some of the main plot points, namely said Nazi zombies. Check out the trailer after the break. (About, Buy Zombie)

A lot of us were disappointed at Night of the Living Dead 3D, despite horror giant Sid Haig’s attempts to make it watchable. Well they’re making a sequel called Night of the Living Dead 3D: Resurrection (part 2: the Return)which will have everything the first movie had, minus Sid. Bummer. (Dread Central)

More pictures were released from the upcoming McFarlane Toys lineup of The Walking Dead figures, including a bad ass Samurai sword wielding Michonne. (Dread Central)

If you live in the Des Moines area and want to help fund the Orpheum Theater and support charity, then you should check out the annual Marshalltown Zombie Walk which is hoping for a permanent move to the theater. (Examiner)

Former Guns N Roses guitarist Slash has started Slasher Films in an effort to be more like Rob Zombie, I guess. One of the first movies in his bullpen is The Other Kingdom which will feature zombie goodness and what I can only hope will be an awesome soundtrack, if Axl Rose doesn’t sue. (Belfast Telegraph)

If you love zombies and have a kid, then these ZOMBIEZOO toys might be right up your alley. Check out the trailer after the break. (Dread Central)
