Armies Of The Dead Surviving, Armies Of The Hungry Ones

I’m having a hard time containing my anticipation for Frank Darabont’s AMC television adaptation of the outstanding graphic novel series, “The Walking Dead.” It’s such a fantastic run of books — seriously, regardless of whether or not you’re a zombie nut, you should check it out. It’s un-fucking-believable. Not only is it one of the best entries in the zombie genre ever (no, seriously), it’s genuinely incredible storytelling, filled with human drama, pathos, intensity, and at times heartbreaking realism. I could go on and on, but instead I’ll just say: read it. Read it now. Or I’ll blow up your car.

Here’s the statement released by AMC today:

Production begins today in Atlanta for AMC’s adaptation of the Robert Kirkman comic The Walking Dead. The six-episode first season — written, produced and directed by three-time Academy Award-nominee Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) and executive produced by Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Aliens, Armageddon, The Incredible Hulk) — follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, traveling in search of a safe and secure home after a zombie apocalypse.

Grimes will be played by Andrew Lincoln, and the series co-stars Jon Bernthal, Laurie Holden (who was also in Darabont’s adaptation of The Mist) and Sarah Wayne Callies (“Prison Break”).

Anyway, we finally have some images from the show, pretty much just of the look of the zombies. Overall, I’d say they look pretty fantastic.

As an added bonus, here’s a quick video featuring Darabont and producer Gale Anne Hurd, discussing the material. Darabont clearly has a love of the genre and the series, which fills me with joy.

Cool stuff. My favorite line is about his wanting “do for zombies what Mad Men has done for advertising.” That’s both hilarious and awesome.
