The Walking Dead: Seasons 1 to 3

Fuck me dead, my prayers have been answered! I've been harping on about TWD being *perfect* series fodder for absolutely ages and now...NOW...Frank motherfucking Darabont wants to bring it to the small screen!

(If you just heard a rip it was my pants exploding.)

Quote:

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.

Farking awesome.

Those are some fucking wicked comics. Love the guy keeping the zombies in his barn, the one armed govenor attacking the prison.

All sorts of awesome shit and its bleak as fuck.

Mate, bleak doesn't even begin to describe some of the shit that goes down in the later trades. No comic has gutted me as frequently, or as much, as TWD.

Frank Darabont. Too fucking cool

Is this like one of those TV shows that never makes it out of production? You know we're still waiting for the Quake movie (haw), Halo, Y: The Last Man, Powers...

"Frank Darabont is close to finalizing a development deal with AMC to write and direct a tv series adaptation of The Walking Dead."

Fingers fucking crossed it doesn't end up in the same limbo as that stuff, eh?

I don't think he's got the emotional range to play a zombie.

He did do The Majestic and The Mist though, so hopefully he is in form for this. But it does look pretty cool though.

I do also, especially the b&w version, but I suspect it was unintentionally B-grade. And The Majestic was just soppy cack.

I think it always knew what it was. Direct to DVD release and all that.

Haven't seen The Majestic. Jim Carrey hotel movie or something right?

I thought it got a theatre release in the States. If not, then point taken.

re: The Majestic, yeah spot on. It is basically about a dude who gets named during the Macarthy Commie witch hunts in the 50s. He goes for a drive, has a crash and wakes up with no memory in a Californian small-town. The locals mistake him for a War-Hero they thought to be dead. The soldiers dad also mistakes him for his soldier son. The dad owns the local movie theatre, The Majestic, yada yada yada, emotional integrity endures.

As the Doctor inferred, it is total gash. Overly sentimental, and reeked of Carrey, having twice been passed over for Oscar nominations for the Truman Show and Man on the Moon (both of which I personally think he was harshly dudded), seeking to gain that elusive nomination. I am probably being a bit harsh on it. In any case, for me at least, it had one redeeming feature in that it got me into reading some books about the circumstances and historical paranoid forces, that allowed Macarthyism to totally circumvent the First Ammendment unchallenged.

I concur. Carrey is awesome as Kaufman. Yeah that Gatsby bit is funny as fuck. Also Tony Clifton is well funny. But Milos Forman is a fantastic director who rarely makes shit. In fact, all his English language (I havent seen any of his Czech films) movies are pretty spot on.

You may well be right about Darabonts intentions. And you never know if he had funding cut or couldnt get the actors he wanted or if he was shafted by the studio so he may not have been able to fully realise what he wanted to do with it. Even if it is unintentionally B-grade, I dont spose it really matters. I think my point was: I hope he brings his Shawshank/Green Mile, A game to The Walking Dead, and is given the funds he needs to make it the chronz.

I can just imagine some dick with a ponytail saying "yeah we want the zombies more like 28 days later" though. It should be shot in black & white too but that'll never happen.

I have faith. Darabont loves the source, and it seems like the other people involved do, too.

I'll be *very* surprised if we see fast zombies. (And I'll be right there with you to burn the fuckers responsible at the stake if it happens.)

This is sounding so fucking sick. Same network as Breaking Bad so you know they're not going to pussy out on shit.

General consensus is that whatever it is that reanimates the dead only works on humans.

Read Max Brooks' books, The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z for more info

The zombies need to be so shambling that you can see a stray one in the distance 500 metres away from your camp ground, take a quick nap, and when you wake it will still be shambling 200 metres away. Zombies should not be loners.

It was just an odd thing to put at the end of a paragraph talking about their shambling speed.

Anyway, loners pop up all the time in the comic. Sometimes quite literally.

apparently darabont's take on zombie speed is when they've fed they're really slow and you can practically walk right past them, as they get more hungry they get faster and more frantic, with a max speed approximately the same speed as the graveyard zombie in the original NOTLD.

I got my hands on a copy of darabonts pilot script a while ago but didn't know if it was legit till the comic con trailer leaked. Without spoiling anything he's totally nailed it. Compared to issue 1 it makes a lot more sense and will play a lot better for tv. He's done something really interesting with morgan's back story too. Really amped for this now. Looks like the rest of the season is in good Hans as well with the stable of the shield / sons of anarchy / dexter writers on board.
