The Walking Dead!

AMC is producing a TV series based on The Walking Dead, and a teaser was screened in San Diego this weekend. Someone in attendance recorded it and posted it to YouTube:

Man, I’m really looking forward to this series. I get the impression there was only so much footage available for the teaser, which is why we have so much of Rick just walking around in uniform, but if it’s as faithful to the original comics as they claim, this series is going to kick all form of ass.

It will also be nice to see a horror show played straight. Most of them end up over-the-top horrific or they play up the Gothic angle. If this show can blend the dramatic tone of Breaking Bad with some good, old-fashioned zombie horror, it’s going to be huge.

Also, be sure to check out the Walking Dead motion comic, which takes Tony Moore’s original art and turns it into an animated teaser. Cool stuff.

    Yeah, I just saw that on YouTube earlier tonight–definitely something I’m going to have to find online! I also heard that Max Brooks’ World War Z is officially going to be made into a film starring Brad Pitt, although I haven’t found anything yet that says for sure what role he plays.
