MTV put this up a month ago, but I didn’t see it until tonight. Shawshank/Green Mile/The Mist writer-director Frank Darabont is looking to bring Robert Kirkman’s epic graphic novel series “The Walking Dead” to the small screen (AMC specifically). This I knew. But MTV has an interview up with Kirkman about Darabont’s involvement and how the comic book might translate to the medium. Says Kirkman about Darabont: “If you’ve seen ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ or ‘The Mist,’ you know he gets to the heart of the characters and shows them dealing with extremes. It’s a match made in heaven.”
It really is. Darabont is awesome, as is “The Walking Dead.” If you haven’t check it out, get your ass over to Amazon and get busy readin’ or get busy dyin’.
