Fringe and Star Trek producers/writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci apparently have too much time on their hands: They are in talks to produce Xombie, a movie about a zombie policeman, from cop-turned-writer Will Beall, which DreamWorks is in talks to buy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Xombie is based on a Devil's Due comic book by James Farr, itself based on his online animated series. Farr's creation centers on a zombie cop named Dirge who attempts to saves humanity's remnants, particularly a young girl named Zoe, from evil zombies.

DreamWorks is in negotiations to acquire the source material. ...

Beall is a former beat cop and anti-gang policeman in the Los Angeles Police Department's 77th Division, who recently became a homicide detective; he continues to serve in the LAPD while writing.
