Word around Hollywood this morning is the news that Night of the Living Dead, is getting a remake.  Interestingly, the zombie horror film will not involve George Romero, but it will be a 3D CGI origin story.  CGI zombies?  Sign me up.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the Darkstorm Comic I, Frankenstein is being adapted into a motion picture. If the comic doesn’t sound familiar to you, that’s because the Kevin Grevioux penned comic hasn’t even arrived in stores yet.
