The latest casualty on THE WALKING DEAD . . . Frank Darabont

It seems that The Walking Dead show front-runner and executive producer Frank Darabont has given up the good fight.  As if he simply just got sick of fending off the hordes of zombies, Darabont has laid down his weapons and given up on the project.  Deadline is reporting that the famed director “never quite adjusted to the daily grind of producing a TV series.” This may have been what reporters are being told, but I’m sure other rumors are being circulated.  Though negotiations are apparently still ongoing to try to reel Darabont back on to the show in some capacity, the likelihood of this happening is as good as surviving a zombie attack with one bullet and a rusty spoon.  It is an understatement to say that this is disappointing news for fans of the popular zombie series.  Season 2 is currently still filming and is still set to premiere on October 16th.  Hopefully Darabont’s departure doesn’t effect the quality of the second season.

Somewhere between growing up on a steady diet of Saturday morning trips to the local comic-book shop, collecting an unhealthy amount of action figures, and frequent viewings of Ray Harryhausen and Hammer Horror films, came forth a nerdy boy that was torn between journalism and the arts. In high school, Michael found himself writing a movie column for the school newspaper. Yet, he went on to get a BFA in Studio Art at Webster University. When not writing about films, you can still find him discussing classic horror, collecting action figures, and reading Batman. Clearly, not much has changed.
