Zombieland TV

* A couple weeks ago news came in that the Zombieland TV show (reported a long time ago) was still alive and kicking.  Now Deadline is reporting that Eli Craig, the Tucker and Dale vs. Evil director, is in talks to helm the TV series.

* It looks like the Weinstein Co. has been quietly working on a sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and reportedly will begin production in May.  My question is, at this point, does it matter?

* AMC has released a new trailer for the second half of The Walking Dead season 3, featuring new footage.

* Latino Review says they’ve got the scoop on the five members who will comprise the Justice League as well as some who may pop in for a quick cameo.

* While talking with SciFiNow, Rob Zombie said he won’t be making a third Halloween movie. 

“I don’t think they are doing anything with Halloween at the moment,” he said. “That is the last thing that I heard — and I’m definitely not directing it if they ever do go ahead with a third movie.”
