Fox Developing a Zombieland TV Series and 5 Other Stories You'll be Talking About Today
Zombies are primetime draws in 2011, dear friends, and that means Zombieland is coming back as a TV series. Hooray? Also in the Broadsheet: Shia LaBeouf gets into a street fight on camera (yikes!) and eyes a "giant" new film role (awww), the Octomom becomes an actress, and a Scrabble competitor plays dirty.
· It was only a couple weeks ago that Zombieland stars Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg signed to reunite in the magician heist film Now You See Me, but here comes even finer Zombieland news: Original scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are developing the feature as a half-hour comedy for Fox's 2012-13 season. The series would replace a big-screen followup. I can hear the promos now: "After an all-new Raising Hope, stay tuned for The Yukking Dead!" [MovieWeb]
· Happy Halloween! The Octomom is starring in a low-budget horror movie! There's video! Sometimes I obscure my shame with exclamation points! [TMZ]
· And finally, it's time to get your hands on KFC's Cheesy Bacon Bowl. The "bowl" is made out of gravy! Mmmm, death by delicious. And nuclear cholesterol. [Gawker]
