Brian Taylor has made a 7 figure deal to write and direct a live-action Twisted Metal. Movies on the horizon for the next couple years are looking better and better. Just keep Uwe Boll in the dark.
If you didn't already know, TellTale is going to make a series of episodic games serving as a prequel to The Walking Dead. Now we'll know what the other survivors were up to before Rick joined up. It looks like it's going to follow the story of the comics. That's for the best.
This is the best hump day in recent memory. If you've got any websites that you think I need to keep an eye on, let me know in the comments or on Twitter. I'm @kelknaughty and I'll be back again tomorrow whether you want me to or not.
