The Walking Dead marching to TV

Darabont to Walk the Dead

One of the best recent series to come out of the comicbook scene is THE WALKING DEAD. Created by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore (replaced by Charlie Adlard from issue #7 onward) the Image comics series chronicles the travels of a group of people trying to survive in a world stricken by a zombie apocalypse.

It was actually last August 11, 2009, that (US television network) AMC (American Movie Classics) expressed wishes to create a Walking Dead television series. And just this week, has greenlit the said television series. Frank Darabont (the Mist, Shawshank Redemption, and The Green Mile) penned the adaptation and is onboard to direct. Gale Anne Hurd of Valhalla Motion Pictures and David Alpert of Circle of Confusion will exec produce with Darabont.
