On the Set of Frank Darabont's THE WALKING DEAD...
.. YO GANG! Man, I think we were all The Walking Dead earlier this week on the set of this new zombie TV series by director Frank Darabont. Darabont, who produced some of the finest translations of Stephen King fiction to film (The Mist, The Green Mile, Shawshank) is in Atlanta filming Robert Kirkman's amazing series THE WALKING DEAD.

During my visit I had the opportunity to sit down with Frank and crew, including writer Robert Kirkman, producer Gale Hurd (Terminator, The Abyss), and special creature effects artist Greg Nicotero of KNB effects. We saw some of the filming of a house interior and exterior shots from the pilot episode being directed by Darabont. In this scene was Lennie Williams (from the Jericho series - which I'm a big fan of) and Andrew Lincoln (playing lead Rick Grimes). The image shown here is an official release from AMC for the series.

The six part series is currently being shot in Atlanta, GA and will premiere on AMC in October during Fearfest on or around Oct. 23rd (check listings at that time for exact dates). I'm working on a write up now and will be posting my visit a bit at a time on the blog. AMC, who brings you Breaking Bad, and Mad Men, are helming The Walking Dead, and they want the information to go out bit by bit for awhile to build the suspense... So keep checking the website as I post new photos and information. Michael Rooker has now been added to the series. I'm tellin' ya, from what I saw.. it's gonna be somethin' special gang.

Pick up Book One of The Walking Dead and you'll find out why Frank Darabont has been working for years to bring this to us. This zombie story is more about the survivors and what they have to do to survive. It's a story that is character driven, and this is what Frank Darabont is "great" at. So pick up book one and get started on this story. The series won't exactly mirror the series, which is good because you'll enjoy the books and the series on their own.

Check out more by clicking the image to my blog, NEVER FEAR, DAVE's HEAR to catch up on the latest for The Walking Dead and many other photos and news items.

== Artist Glenn Chadbourne has produced a unique book plate that is exclusive to the Overlook and signed by him and Hans Lilja who is the author of this Stephen King book on his site. Lilja's Library is the most popular website on Stephen King in the world (not including King's site of course) and Stephen King has always promoted Lilja's site because of the information and news he brings to the readers. Now a lot of it has been collected in this special volume, including new and expanded pieces. Read More Below... This title is at the printer and shipping in June... we are limited to our signed plates, so order soon.

That's enuff yappin' from me this week out. Y'all stay cool out there and let me know if I can help with anything.

Remember, We All Shine On!
