No Live Blogging - Reports Coming Soon

Unfortunately the convention center in San Francisco does NOT have wifi available and we will NOT be live blogging any of the panels today. I am writing a couple of updates in the panels and will post them live as soon as I can. I have limited wifi access and have to head far out of the ballroom in order to write any posts. It's an unfortunate delay, but I'll keep you updated with details once the panel kicks off.

World War Z - The Zombie Wars Movie

World War ZYou've probably never heard of this book, but you should definitely take an interest. It's written by Max Brooks, Mel Brooks' son, who also wrote "The Zombie Survival Guide". Without going too much into detail about World War Z, it's another faux zombie tale subtitled "An Oral History of the Zombie War" that's set in the aftermath of a war fought between humanity and a legion of flesh-eating zombies.

In another update from the New York Comic-Con last weekend via IGN, "Babylon 5" creator J. Michael Straczynski announced that he is writing the screenplay adaptation of the book for Paramount. The novel's rights were picked up last year by none other than Brad Pitt's production company Plan B (that's previously produced Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The Departed), with a possibility of having him star.

Endless Updates on Stephen King's The Dark Tower

If you're interested in Marvel's "Dark Tower" comic book series from legendary novelist Stephen King, or just interested in the possibility of having J.J. Abrams (who was just confirmed as the director on Star Trek XI) work on a film adaptation of it, then it's your best bet to read either of these reports from the New York Comic-Con where King spoke at Cinematical (full transcript) or Ain't It Cool News. Apparently King has spoken with J.J. Abrams about the project, and is confident in and trusts Abrams, which is very rare for Stephen King. He said that when Abrams first approached him, his response was, "I'll tell you what... you can option the books and see what you can do with it." There's also an update from Ain't It Cool News coming in just a few days on The Dark Tower, so stay tuned for those details and much more, including what this movie and comic book is even be about.

Kevin Smith's Back-to-Back Filming Schedule

The New York Comic-Con is currently underway this weekend, and one of the reports trickling in from it is from the great Kevin Smith, who gave a talk at the con. In the report on Cinematical, Smith stated that he will be shooting back-to-back films, one being a comedy, one a horror (which has been previously mentioned). No details on the plot or script or anything about either of them, but he did say that the comedy "had to be shot in the winter." He'll likely be shooting that one sometime in the upcoming winter and the horror afterwards, with the comedy arriving first. Sounds like some more great movies from Smith on the way, on top of directing a new TV pilot - exciting!
