The guy who wrote The Grudge says his production company is working on a film adaptation of Monster Island, a serialized novel about, get this, a post-zombie apocalypse New York City.  Holy crap, what an idea!  Why hasn’t anyone thought of that before?

"The novel lays the foundation for a zombie film the likes of which no one has ever made or seen – a couple dozen people against forty million zombies on Manhattan Island," he says. "And this isn’t a group of people trapped in a room, trying to hold back the tide – this is a head-on collision, a battle that nearly destroys the entire city. My producing partner and I have teamed up with a visual FX company to realize this book as it should be realized — as an epic, 300-esque horror action film that will blow people out of their chairs." – Stephen Susco [via Shocktillyoudrop]

So apparently, to create a fresh concept, all you have to do is take an old concept and add zombies. I’ve created a few myself: 

Zombies and Black People Have a Family Gathering
Zombies and Will Ferrell Play a Funny Sport
Zombies and Matthew McConaughey
Fall in Love Despite Their Differences
Zombies and Judd Apatow Have Jew Fros, Refuse to Grow Up
Zombie Dance Squad Raises the Money to Save the Rec Center
JJ Abrams’ Untitled Zombie Project (studio says the plot is tightly under wraps)
Chris Tucker and the Zombie (A Brett Ratner Film)
Zombie Adam Sandler is Rich, Yet Hilariously Immature
Zombies vs. Talking Animals in a Fantasy Realm for Children
Zombie Efron: An Effeminate Musical for Pre-Pubescent Girls
