Darabont Walking Dead

08.11.2009

Horror and comic fans will be thrilled to hear that the zombie series THE WALKING DEAD is coming to screens. But while those screens will be small, the talent involved is pretty big.

Filmmaker Frank Darabont (THE MIST, THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION) is developing the fan-fave ongoing Image comic as a new series for cable channel AMC, currently on fire thanks to acclaimed shows "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad".

Robert Kirkman's dark book follows a group of survivors trying to find food, shelter and some small indication of hope in a post-apocalyptic world mostly populated by flesh-craving zombies. The cinematic and shocking series is perhaps best known for how these remaining humans interact, and for a cheerful willingness to gruesomely maim or kill regular characters without warning.

Gale Anne Hurd (ALIENS, T2) is also producing the project.

Extra Tidbit: Darabont once considered making a miniseries sequel of Carpenter's THE THING for the Sci-Fi Channel.
