You’ll have to wait a little longer to get your next Resident Evil film fix. Yesterday, a report had it that Resident Evil: Afterlife may get pushed back to January 14, 2011 from its current slated release of August 27, 2010, to give the filmmakers more time to complete the film’s 3D and CGI effects. Now it is official. (Shock Till You Drop)

On the eve of Zombieland‘s release there is a buttload of press hitting for it. An interview with Emma Stone, and this interview with Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrleson, or this interview with director Ruben Flesicher. There’s plenty more out there (I actually misplaced another interview with Fleischer somewhere in my bazillion bookmarks…) go find it if that doesn’t satiate you… (Various)

Robert Kirkman explains how the Walking Dead is going to come to TV. (Splash Page)

George Romero himself is tackling a zombie novel called The Living Dead which will explain a huge amount of backstory to his mythos, including the full capabilities of the zombie. (The Guardian)

Halloween in New York should be fun, what with the Plants vs. Zombies themed troupe marching in this year’s Village Halloween Parade. In NYC and like dressing as a zombie? Or a plant? You should join them. I would if I could. (Kotaku)

So that Resident Evil 5 director’s cut is apparently actually an “alternative edition” with PS3 wand control and some new stuff. Anyway, clip after the break. Kotaku also has some pics of some groovy action figures of the main characters that nerdy collectors will cream over, no doubt. (Kotaku)

Quiet Earth scored a trailer for The Revenant, a buddy pic with a zombie/vampire hybrid type thing called, not too surprisingly, a revenant. Looks pretty cool. And its trailer is embedded for you after the break. (Quiet Earth)

Online video network Crackle is launching a zombie web series with Jon Heder (you might know him as Napoleon Dynamite) called Woke Up Dead. There’s a preview after the break. (Dread Central)

Atlanta people, you can zombie walk Sunday, October 4.

DreamWorks is in negotiations to buy the rights for Xombie, the animated series turned graphic novel about a zombie cop trying to save the remnants of humanity. Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are in talks to produce. (Reuters)

An exclusive interview with the writers of Zombieland, mostly about the process of writing and making the film. (Shock Till You Drop)

Zombieland clips incoming! This one has a clown attack. This other one has a hold up. Both are embedded for you after the break. (Dread Central)

There’s an interview with the lead designer of the impending zombie defense game Fort Zombie.  It covers details about the gameplay and how the game is put together, with a bit about influences, and you can read it here. (Rock, Paper, Shotgun)

The next Max Brooks zombie book, the graphic novel Recorded Attacks, is imminent — October 6 sees it arrive in stores. To celebrate, some New Jersey zombie walkers are doing a giveaway of a Brooks- signed poster. You have to give blood to enter. (Dread Central)

Can’t wait until November 17 to play Left 4 Dead 2? Get a taste when the demo hits October 27. No word yet on what platform (PC or Xbox) it’s for or whether it’s for preorder folks or what, but hey, we have a date at least. (Kotaku)

Our pals at Zombie Command have a trailer and a few details for Duty of Living, a low-budget zombie flick that seems to draw parallels with the Iraq war. (Zombie Command)

Lucky British bastards are getting a deluxe three-disc version of George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead on Blu-ray. Tons of special features, three cuts of the film (including Argento’s awesome Euro cut) and other cool shit. This side of the pond will have to wait, I guess. Or buy a region-free BD player. Does such a thing exist? (Fangoria)

More Resident Evil: Afterlife casting is announced. Allie Larter reprises her role as Claire Redfield while Wentworth Miller plays someone. Or something. Or someone who turns into something. Hard to say with the RE series. (Bloody Disgusting)

In related news, Dread Central extracted some plot details for RE:Afterlife. (Dread Central)

A new, subtitled and supposedly final trailer for REC 2 is out, and embedded after the break. (Bloody Disgusting)

Buy Night of the Creeps on DVD from a retail location, get $10 “movie cash” (assume that can be used to buy tickets? Not sure, really) for Zombieland. Okay, you can get the deal on other DVDs, too, but the rest either isn’t zombie related or sucks, so I am ignoring it. (Fangoria)

A mysterious update for Left 4 Dead has some fans buzzing about new achievements. (Kotaku)

I know many of you don’t mind spoilers if it means you get an early look at stuff. For you, there’s a video of the first fifteen minutes of Wii space-zombie shooter-on-rails Dead Space: Extraction after the break. (Kotaku)
