Topic: AMC orders pilot for The Walking dead

So, I haven't been on here in ages, but when I saw found this out, I was pretty psyched. Apologies if you guys already noted this back in January when the decision was made, but I figured it gave em an excuse to drop you guys a line.

It appears the AMC has ordered a pilot for a television adaptation of my new favorite comic, The Walking Dead. Not only will the comic's creator serve as a producer, but it's also slated to be written and directed by Frank Darabont.

If you guys haven't checked out the comic, you really should, it's pretty kickass.

Why do I get the feeling it will be screwed up?  I love the comic and idea, but we all know how that usually turns out.  sad

Hi EBK, long time no talky.

Re: AMC orders pilot for The Walking dead

Quicky question.  AMC as in American Movie Classics?

Re: AMC orders pilot for The Walking dead

Yeah Az, as in the guys that make Mad Men and Breaking Bad.

I think that if the follow the tone of the comic even a little bit, they'll have a home run. And lest we not forget, it's Frank Darabont.

That said, I would love to see the character Donna played by Marcia Gay Harden, I thinks he'd be perfect.

Re: AMC orders pilot for The Walking dead

AMC tends to do good work, in my opinion.

Re: AMC orders pilot for The Walking dead

^ Agreed.

And I know it would probably never happen, but i could totally see Aaron Eckhart as Rick Grimes.
