Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Mist) is reportedly close to finalizing a development deal with AMC to write and direct a live-action series based on Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead.
The story follows Officer Rick Grimes' never-ending struggle to survive in a world plagued by the undead.
Though no details have been given, AMC's Joel Stillerman promises the series will stay faithful to the tone of the original novels.
If somebody was going to do it, I'm glad that it's Darabont. Still, I really don't want to see this go down the toilet.
