Zombie Update

DARABONT TAKES THE WALKING DEAD TO TV: "Frank Darabont is close to finalizing a development deal with AMC to write and direct a tv series adaptation of The Walking Dead. If your head just exploded you probably realize how potentially huge this is. AMC realizes how big it is as well, and indeed, it will be one of the richest development deals ever made, according to Variety. Joel Stillerman, AMC's head of programming, production and original content says that 'The series will stay faithful to the tone of the original novels. This is not about zombies popping out of closets,this is a story about survival, and the dynamics of what happens when a group is forced to survive under these circumstances. The world (in 'Walking Dead') is portrayed in a smart, sophisticated way.'"

Cool. TV will be eating our brains on a whole new level.

Nah, considering it's Frank Darabont, this will be on a familiar banal level. Perhaps we'll all get very lucky. Don't count on it.
