The film centers on a crippled cop who works with a group of undercover investigators who temporarily paralyze hearts to move back and forth between the land of the living and the dead.
I feel like most people know that Zombieland started life as a TV series (though they never got as far as filming a pilot) and now it appears, rather concretely, as if they’re trying to go that route again. This is hot on the heels of the original film’s director Ruben Fleischer stating that there was no script for (and no immediate plans to make) the sequel.
Per io9, casting sheets went out yesterday for the series. The series looks like it will be a half-hour one and the character descriptions are similar to how they appeared in the film. Columbus and Wichita are still together, Wichita is still looking after Little Rock, Tallahassee is still a wild card etc… and there are two new characters (who hopefully are only in the one episode), “Fred and Ainsley are two office workers at the start of the zombie apocalypse, obliviously complaining about problems with their iPhones and getting the wrong order at Starbucks, which they admit are “first world problems” with a hashtag — while people are being disembowled just outside the window they’re not facing”
While the original show was slated to air on CBS, there’s no concrete word on what network this current incarnation is targeting (or if its already been ordered by one). Head to io9 for more!
Finally! Now we get to meet the characters of “American Horror Story: Asylum”! EW got their hands on 10 stills featuring the primary cast in character and, for my money, it looks more interesting that Season 1. Also – it’ll feature Aliens? Per the article, ““aliens, Nazis, and a serial killer named Bloody Face who wears a mask made out of his victims skin along with black nightie and opera length gloves.”
Starting on October 17th, only on FX, the new season is set at an East Coast asylum for the criminally insane in 1964, and revolves around Jessica Lange’s new character — a nun — and her boss at the institution, played by James Cromwell. Clea Duvall, Chris Zylka, Joseph Fiennes, Chloe Sevigny, The Voice’s Adam Levine, Mark Consuelos and newcomer Lizzie Brochere round out the cast. Other returning cast members set to play new roles include Sarah Paulson, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters and Lily Rabe.
The first installment of “American Horror Story” earned 17 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, tying for the most of any program this year and setting a record for the most Emmy nominations for a miniseries in basic cable history. Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Dante Di Loreto and Tim Minear are Executive Producers of “American Horror Story: Asylum.” It is produced by 20th Fox Television.

The third season of The Walking Dead has been shooting for a week or two, but that doesn’t mean that the show is done casting for the year yet. According to Spoiler TV there’s at least a couple of significant roles in the upcoming episodes that haven’t garnered much discussion yet. Here they are:
“[HAROLD] 40s to early 50s. Male. A studious and fastidious man, trying to create a niche for himself in this new world. Guest star. Recurring
[MANUEL] 30 to 40, Hispanic, a working class survivor, he is confident, physically skilled, a leader when necessary, capable and smart. Has a terrific sense of humor where you wouldn’t expect one. Recurring.”
The show, “tells the story of the weeks and months that follow a pandemic zombie apocalypse. County Sheriff Rick Grimes travels with his family and a small group of survivors, constantly in search of a safe and secure home. But the constant pressure of fighting off death on a daily basis takes a heavy toll, sending many to the lowest depths of human cruelty. As Rick struggles to keep his family alive, he will discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth.”
I’m not sure how much speculation you guys are prepared to dive into in regard to these characters, but be my guest.
