SDCC10: Director Frank Darabont Talks ‘The Walking Dead’

Yesterday, we brought you an exclusive interview with Andrew Lincoln, the star of one of the most anticipated upcoming series on AMC, The Walking Dead. Based on the comic series by Robert Kirkman, the show adapts this “zombie apocalypse” story into a 6-episode season, coming this October on AMC.

The series is said to be an amazing hybrid of both comic story elements, as well as horror elements from Hollywood. One name that can attest to that is horror director Frank Darabont. Darabont helped take Kirkman’s series to AMC, and he’s also executive producer of the show, as well as stepping behind the camera to direct a few episodes.

We got the opportunity to speak with Mr. Darabont about the upcoming series, as well as what attracted him to the project. Check out the interview after the jump and keep it here for more coverage of the upcoming The Walking Dead series.
