Dreamworks' Xombie?

Nope, that's not a typo in the title. At least not MY typo (for once...). That's a pitch currently being looked into by Dreamworks, with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci along to produce. Aren't you two supposed to be working on a TREK sequel? Focus, guys!

The proposed film centers on a dead dude named Dirge who protects humanity from evil zombies. As opposed to the good kind. So, how many Zombie movie projects are in the pipeline thus far?

Why not just go ahead and call it a DEAD HEAT remake, you may ask. That's because it's a pitch from ex-cop-turned-writer Will Beall based a comic book by James Farr based on his online animated series. Anyone seen it? I'm a little curious.

Extra Tidbit: Haven't watched DEAD HEAT in years. Is it out on DVD yet?

Yes.

I own the DVD of the animated series (available at Best Buy) and I have to say, I was thoroughly surprised at how awesome it was. And the comic looked even better. I approve.

It's actually pretty cool...

and I would much rather be flooded with zombie flicks than lame vampire movies.

I remember watching the first few episodes of the flash internet cartoon for Xombie and thinking how great of a movie it would make at the time. I'm just not sure how interested I'd be in seeing it right now in our "Here's an old tired concept...BUT WITH ZOMBIES SO IT'S GOOD!" culture these days. Maybe if there's a good break in zombie films for a little while this would be something i'd be pretty excited for.

I've seen Xombie. It's actually a fairly intriguing Flash series. Not quite sure how it interprets on film, but Dirge is pretty badass with a shovel.

Yes!

Dead Heat is indeed available on DVD, I ordered from play.com here in the UK but haven't got round to watching it yet. Saving it for a beer fuelled night with friends! I hope it lives up to its premise!
