Spielberg's Robopocalypse (another book I liked) is set to premier at the same time as World War Z (Summer, 2013).
Some critics have said Robopocalypse is a knockoff of World War Z -- just replacing zombies with robots.
I plan on seeing both.

Last night I saw pt1 of a three part BBC Drama In The Flesh. This is quite a different take on the zombie film, set after the outbreak a treatment has been found for those suffering from partially dead syndrome (pds). They're pumped up with chemicals and suffering nightmares as they remember what they did in their untreated state.
They're being returned to live in the community with family members, but all is not well, lots of people aren't happy about it. Armed militias are converging on homes where they think a pds suffere is staying and carrying out mob justice.
There's also an undead guru on line dishing out drugs for the pds called 'blue oblivion' the effects of which have yet to be fully explored. It's very well acted with a cast that includes Ricky Tomlinson and Kenneth Cranham as an evangelical priest.
