Upcoming Outbreaks

Well it seems we can look forward to some new high profile zombie flicks in the not to distant future. As far as zombie movies have a lot of independent and small time projects that are out every year, then you have your big budget zombie movies.

The remake of Dawn of the Dead was an awesome movie, and it seems that it's producer Richard Rubinstein has announced a sequel. Dawn of the Dead was one of the movies that made me feel that remakes can be good. So lets see what happens with the sequel.

And what does one do after directing a James Bond movie? Well Marc Foster, director of Quantum of Solace is said to be gearing up to direct a movie adaptation of the zombie novel World War Z, written by Max Brooks... the genius behind the Zombie Survival Guide.

It seems Zombies are the bigs bucks these days... with everything from video games to big shot movies taking them very seriously. I'm looking forward to 28 months later, which was announced by Danny Boyle back in March.... If the quality of the effort is anything like 28 weeks, then we're gonna be in for a real treat. But I think the movie I'm most anticipating next year would have to be the Evil Dead remake. The 1981 movie is one of my all time favorites, given todays movie magic, I think it could be redone very nicely. Plus since it is the man him self, Sam Raimi in charge, only good things will come.

Aside from the big name projects, I'm sure we'll have a lot of pleasing smaller ones too. Colin... a movie a bout a guy being bitten by a zombie is out soon. We get to watch as Colin slowly turns into a flesh craving zombie through the course of the movie. Then there's this really cool poster for Infected that looks promising.

All in all...just keep your eyes and ears open for many incoming Zombie treats. Like real zombies, the good movies seem to almost creep up on us.
