Between the Paranormal Activity midnight screenings that took place last night and Dread Central's Fantastic Fest activities that are ongoing in Austin, TX, this weekend, we're stretched a little thin so thought we'd just cut to the chase with the latest developments on two projects that we're keeping a close eye on: Zebediah de Soto's 3D Night of the Living Dead: Origins and Oren Peli's Area 51. Most of the info on both came to us via Twitter.
This scribe hit earlier today the press junket (which become more like a press conference) on the Santa Monica Pier for Sony Pictures’ forthcoming October 2 release of Zombieland and chatted with the flick’s director, Ruben Fleischer, as well as with film stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, and Emma Stone and writers and co-producers
Another clip appeared online today for Zombieland (review here) courtesy of MySpace TV, and what a shock! It's another good one!
Never mind that whole "we are descended from monkeys" business, we're talking about evil here, folks, and as anyone here on the net can tell you, that means serious business! Especially when pertaining to flesh-eating zombies who are out to ravage the planet.
We are so stoked for Zombieland (review here) that we can barely contain ourselves. A new clip just surfaced over at MySpace today that does a lot to feed our fervor!
Have an urge to walk with the dead? The fourth Old School Sinema Cleveland Charity Zombie Walk (or, OSSCCZW, if you want something easier to say), is set to take place Saturday, September 19th, in Lakewood, Ohio. The event is being sponsored by the upcoming and very awesome looking Zombieland, and participants will have an opportunity to win tickets to an advance screening.
Didn't we just get treated to a 3D remake of Night of the Living Dead a few years ago, and didn't it pretty much suck to high heaven? Here we are once again, and for the record George A. Romero has nothing to do with this production either. This time it's being produced by Simon West, director of the abysmal remake When a Stranger Calls and the equally atrocious Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.
Over twenty new stills for Ruben Fleischer's upcoming zomcom Zombieland (review here) have been dropped on us filled with behind-the-scenes goodness to go with Woody and his special brand of ghoul dispatching mayhem.
The final theatrical trailer for Ruben Fleischer's upcoming zomcom Zombieland (review here) has just appeared online. In a nutshell, it's pretty much the red band trailer minus some of the goodies, but it's still fun. Love the digitally added bikini top on that one running dead chick!

The dead rise to pick up the spare! The Wildclaw Theater is proudly sponsoring Zombie Bowling II, The Dawn of the Dude, to take place next Saturday, September 19th, at the Timber Lanes Bowling Alley in Chicago.
The sixth entry into George A. Romero's Dead franchise, Survival of the Dead, is getting quite a bit of attention after its debut run at the Venice International Film Festival, where according to @OfficialRomero it received a nearly five-minute long standing ovation upon conclusion (a portion of which was caught on video), and as a result distribution rights are selling quickly!

Halo-8 Entertainment is kicking copious amounts of ass when it comes to the innovative animation technique known as "illustrated filmmaking", and upon completion of their recently announced upcoming Loaded Bible project, they will next be producing the horror/sci-fi adventure Xombie: Reanimated created by James Farr.
