The Future is Looking Good for Zombies

Not only is there a new textbook that applies IR Theory to a potential Zombie outbreak, but the movie of the best Zombie book, World War Z, is now proceeding.  Brad Pitt is to star and the movie is supposed to come out in 2012.  This fall, AMC, the channel that brought us Mad Men, is bringing Walking Dead, a highly acclaimed comic book to, ahem, life on TV this fall, with Frank Darabont as the producer (Darabont directed Shawshank Redemption and the The Green Mile and also wrote much of the under-rated Young Indiana Jones Chronicles).

Having spent part of this summer catching up on older Zombie movies (Romero and re-makes, one of the Resident Evil movies), I am looking forward to the next few years of undead entertainment.
