Frank Darabont developing The Walking Dead

Robert Kirkman's Walking Dead graphic novels will be brought to your TV by Frank Darabont, the top director behind The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile. US network AMC are behind it, and being the gang who make Mad Men, Breaking Bad and the reimagined The Prisoner, this could be interesting.

"This is not about zombies popping out of closets," AMC's Joel Stillman told Variety . "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."
