The zombie movie thing

Zombies AheadWe received everyone’s e-mails about the zombie movie–and thanks. But we’re not seeing anything new here. The reports all come from this Variety article, which to us has the odor of Somebody’s People trying to raise some buzz about the project; Mission Accomplished! We reported last April that Natalie Portman was going to play Lizzy if this film ever got made, and predicted it a few days before that (Natalie is Keira’s evil twin, after all). The only thing new in this article is that Portman’s production company is involved. There is no filming date announced, no release date; we’ll believe it’s happening when we see the first grainy paparazzi shots from the set and not a moment before, at which point we will commence ignoring it.
