I wish Hollywood could combine all these zombie projects into one film, it’d make not giving a sh-t about them so much easier. Anyway, the first pictures are up from Zombieland, a zombie buddy-comedy starring Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg. How’s this different from Shaun of the Dead or Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse you ask? Um… Woody Harrelson?
Elsewhere, Watchmen screenwriter David Hayter has signed on to write Deadworld based on (of course) a comic book.
“Deadworld” veers from the popular zombie mythology of depicting an apocalypse in which humans are overrun by flesh-eating corpses. “Deadworld” picks up four months after that event, where the Dead overtake the Earth, with humans few and far between. Protag is King Zombie, a Harley-riding corpse who holds a grudge against the survivors who made him an outcast. [Variety]
Oh, Hollywood. Take an old concept, add a motorcycle or some sunglasses and ta da, it’s new again. Oh jeez, he wears a leather jacket? The kids are gonna go nuts for this.
