THE WALKING DEAD: After all of the anticipation and all of the buzz, director Frank Darabont is officially on set filming the first of six episodes of THE WALKING DEAD, the AMC TV adaptation of the incredible Robert Kirkman zombie comic series from Image. After a decade of unique and different zombie films - one of the first questions we all want to know is: will these zombies walk or run? Darabont is looking to George A. Romero's groundbreaking 1968 film NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD for inspiration. Read about it below.

In an interview with AMC, director Frank Darabont explains how he'll be deciding if the zombies in THE WALKING DEAD will walk, run, or even jog. "I've always wanted to do my take on the zombie mythos, since I was a kid and I saw Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD - the 1968 black and white version," he tells AMC. "For our zombie show I'm calling that the Book of Genesis, and whenever there's a question about zombie behavior I go back to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD."

He continues, "Here's my favorite thing: the endless debate among the fans about how fast a zombie can move. There are the folks who just can't stand seeing zombies running. I'm kind of in that camp, but if you look at the very first zombie in Night - the one in the cemetery chasing Barbara, he gets up to a pretty good jog. I'm keying our zombie behavior off of that film: Whether they're in a very languid state or they're on the attack, they'll move no faster than that first zombie in NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD."

THE WALKING DEAD 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. Jon Bernthal, Andrew Lincoln, Jeffrey DeMunn, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, and Steven Yeun all star. AMC will premiere it this October.

THE WALKING DEAD: AMC TV will be airing the first six episodes of their new live-action series adapted from the Robert Kirkman zombie comic that stars Jon Bernthal, Andrew Lincoln, Jeffrey DeMunn, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Steven Yeun, Michael Rooker, Chandler Riggs, Linds Edwards, Jim Coleman, and Emma Bell. THE WALKING DEAD tells the story of the weeks and months that follow a pandemic zombie apocalypse. County Sheriff Rick Grimes travels with his family and a small group of survivors, constantly in search of a safe and secure home. But the constant pressure of fighting off death on a daily basis takes a heavy toll, sending many to the lowest depths of human cruelty. As Rick struggles to keep his family alive, he will discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth.
