Halifax Zombie Walk 2009
“Its August. Which only means one thing, Zombies.
The annual Halifax Zombie Walk had the perfect day. Sunshine, clear skies, and lots of healthy pedestrians having no idea whats going. The undead parade was filled to the brim this year with ghouls from all ages, shapes and sizes. It was so excellent to see not just the 18-30 year olds dressing up. So many children got very into character with some terrifying make-up and costumes. Check the pictures yourselves for all the gory details.”
AMC and Darabont are Adapting The Walking Dead!
AMC is close to finalizing one of the richest development deals ever with Frank Darabont to write and direct a series adaptation of the Image Comics graphic novel series “The Walking Dead,” written by Robert Kirkman.
Variety says that Gale Anne Hurd of Valhalla Motion Pictures and David Alpert of Circle of Confusion are also on board to executive produce.
The story is set among a group of zombie survivors of an apocalypse who are led by a police officer, Rick Grimes, in search of a safe place to live.
AMC Senior Vice President of Programming Joel Stillerman said the series will stay faithful to the tone of the original novels. “This is not about zombies popping out of closets. This is a story about survival, and the dynamics of what happens when a group is forced to survive under these circumstances. The world (in ‘Walking Dead’) is portrayed in a smart, sophisticated way.”
