Robert Kirkman's "The Walking Dead" is not only one of the best-selling independent titles in comics, but it's on the cusp of being a TV series on AMC.  Darabont is set "to write and direct a series adaptation" according to Variety.  Kirkman descibes his book as a "Romero zombie film that never ends."  More accurately, the zombie world-clearing event is mainly an excuse to examine how people survive.  The title actually has a double meaning.  Does it refer to the zombies or the living?

Damn you! I wanted to make The Walking Dead thread. /img/vbsmilies/htf/tongue.gif

This is exciting news. The Walking Dead is the best zombie story I've ever encountered and with the likes of Shaun of the Dead and Romero's films (Diary aside, that movie sucked) that's saying a lot. Hopefully it lives up to the comics greatness.

No way.  I have the entire series in single issue form.  I had to be the one.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/biggrin.gif  I'd never sell it, but if this show comes to pass, it looks like the value will be going up.

It looks like BSG's Jamie Bamber may be leading the cast.

Some bloke called Andrew Lincoln is getting the lead role.  Rick Grimes.  I know the HTF is just burning with excitement over this show, so I brought the news as fast as I could.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/wink.gif

I try not to read this thread that much for fear of spoilers (I've only read the first trade).

Thanks, guys.  Travis, typical TV spoiler warnings apply as if the book doesn't even exist.  Any plot points should only be discussed in spoiler text, and I would suggest the added precaution of labeling spoilers as pertaining to the book or the show.  As for me, I have no real interest in discussing the story here at all and will just try to bring production news when I find it and if it seems relevant.

Count me in as another fan of Kirkman's great "The Walking Dead" series that is eagerly awaiting this on AMC.  Given Frank Darabont's track record, I'm hoping for a faithful adaptation of the series.

Looks like Brandon Routh is in.  With Rick and Shane previously cast, I can't imagine his role.  Carl from the future?  /img/vbsmilies/htf/biggrin.gif

 I know this may sound odd because of the nature of the subject.  But, I do hope they do make some changes and make the show a bit less depressing.  I belong to a forum that is based on the zombie apocalypse.  And even most posters find the WD comics just too much of a downer.
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

Routh's people deny he's in it now.

Sarah Wayne Callies joined the cast as Lori Grimes.  I like her, so that's good news.  Say what you want about Prison Break, but they could raid that show for any number of actors as far as I'm concerned.  Fichtner, Knepper . . . those guys would be good at anything in the world.

First shots of the "roamers," if you want to see them:

"Roamers" is what the characters generally call the zombies.  AMC is calling them "walkers."
