We just can’t get enough of the undead around these parts, and that’s a good thing because lately zombies are everywhere, especially in comics and movies, so it’s no surprise that another comic book movie adaptation is on its way featuring the flesh-eating fiends.

Variety reports that writers Bob Layton and David Michelinie are working on Shambler, a big-screen adaptation of their comic book.

Touted as an action-horror-comedy, Shamblercenters on a scientist who creates a serum that reanimates dead tissue. He’s murdered but reanimated by associates as a mummy encased in black-and-yellow crime scene tape.

The film has been budgeted at $4 million and is being touted at Cannes by Anne Marie Gillen, whose Hollywood lineage includes exec producing Fried Green Tomatoes. Layton and Michelinie are authors of many of the Iron Man comic book stories and created characters including Rhodey Rhodes and Justin Hammer.

They have a huge following so this idea is really franchisable and really fun,” Gillen says. “We’re planning to deliver the finished film next year at Cannes.

Will Director Andrew Stanton Return for STRANGER THINGS 3?

Published

on

Monday we brought you the killer news that the third season of Netflix’s original series Stranger Things had begun filming and today we have more updates!

First off, the new season will run 8-episodes with producer Shawn Levy telling Collider Stranger Things 3 will be back down to the original season’s 8-episode run, following season two’s 10-episodes.

Levy also let us know if Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, Wall-E) will be back in the director’s chair this season…and it doesn’t look like it… Weak.

No, you know what,” Levy said. “We had some schedule issues trying to figure out how to bring Andrew back, because we were beyond thrilled with him as a human being and his episodes. So the only answer I can give you today is it’s not Stanton, though we very much hope to keep him in the director club of Stranger Things as we move on to other seasons.”

Stanton is one of my favorite directors so this news kinda bums me out. What do you think? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Strangers Things seasons 1 & 2 are currently streaming on Netflix.

Death Line:
When a prominent politician and a beautiful young woman vanish inside a London subway station, Scotland Yard’s Inspector Calhoun (Donald Pleasence of Halloween) investigates and makes a horrifying discovery. Not only did a group of 19th century tunnel workers survive a cave-in, but they lived for years in a secret underground enclave by consuming the flesh of their own dead. Now the lone descendant of this grisly tribe has surfaced, prowling the streets for fresh victims… and a new mate.

Deathdream:
In this shattering variation on The Monkey’s Paw, grief-stricken suburban parents (Academy Award nominees John Marley of The Godfather and Lynn Carlin of Faces) refuse to accept the news that their son, Andy (Richard Backus), has been killed in Vietnam. But when Andy returns home soon after, something may be horribly wrong: Andy is alive and well… or is he? Produced and directed by Bob Clark (Black Christmas) and written by Alan Ormsby (Deranged), Deathdream was one of the very first films to confront the domestic ravages of the Vietnam War. More than forty years later, it remains one of the most chilling horror films of all time.

However, this causes them to doubt their own memory, perceptions – and even their own sanity in this thriller in the vein of Disturbing Behavior and The Faculty.
