While the writers of AMC's The Walking Dead have only just begun to discuss what will happen in Season 2, speculation about how close the series will stay to the comic book series that inspired it runs rampant — even among the actors.

Earlier this week, Deadline.com reported that executive producer Frank Darabont had let his writing staff go, including his No. 2 guy, executive producer Charles "Chic" Eglee. The report also suggested that Darabont might not hire a new team of writers to pen Season 2's 13 episodes, but would instead assign scripts to freelancers.
"It's kind of unfortunate that it's being reported that our writing staff has been fired because that's not the case," Kirkman, who created the comic book series on which the AMC zombie drama is based, tells TVGuide.com...

Andrew Lincoln, The Walking Dead
If you've seen any zombie film, the flesh-craving creatures of AMC's The Walking Dead aren't exactly novel.
That's not to say that makeup and special effects wizard Gregory Nicotero hasn't seriously outdone himself. Or that being caught on a city block surrounded by hundreds of soulless, hungry ghouls isn't terrifying. It's just that this story is about more than delivering a few scares.

"The most compelling part of the series is how emotionally involved you become in these characters' lives," executive producer Gale Anne Hurd (Terminator, Aliens) tells TVGuide.com. "Even though I've read all the scripts and was there when it was shot, I still find myself becoming surprisingly emotional in almost every episode over something the characters are having to endure. To me, that is unexpected and remarkable."
That idea was paramount for Hurd's collaborator, writer-producer-director Frank Darabont, who tried for years to get an adaptation Robert Kirman's beloved series of comic books off the ground...
The Walking Dead
With its putrid zombie hoard, The Walking Dead is the ultimate Halloween gift for fans of gore: There are splattered heads, swarming flies and enough tattered, rotting flesh to make most watch through splayed fingers. But peel back just a thin layer of the decaying skin and you'll find the heart of AMC's newest drama is entirely human — racing 90 beats a minute, pumping furiously to stay alive. "There's us and the dead. We survive this by pulling together, not apart," says deputy sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln).
"It's a story that anyone can relate to," explains Robert Kirkman, author of the acclaimed comic-book series on which the show is based. "The zombies are representative of disaster, but the focus is on the people — everything they go through."
Rick Grimes is an Everyman with everything: a wife, a son...
Red: Werewolf Hunter (Saturday, 9/8c, Syfy)
Not to be confused with the Bruce Willis/Helen Mirren movie about Retired and Extremely Dangerous spies, this Halloween-ready TV-movie stars Felicia Day (The Guild, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog) as a carrot-topped descendent of Little Red Riding Hood who's mixing it up with a different sort of wolfish predator. Things get complicated when Red brings home a fiancée who get bitten by a werewolf, making him a prime target of her werewolf-hunting family. Can Red save the day?

In many ways, zombies are the most horrifying of classic monsters. They're not romantic, tragic-hero types. They just are. No explaining them, no containing them; they're the human animal reduced to its most primitive and soulless state, compelled by only one need: to feed. All you can do is run.

Stephen King's The Mist courtesy Dimension Films
Director Frank Darabont tells SCI FI Wire that in his big-screen do-up of Stephen King's novella The Mist (in theaters Nov. 21), he saw fit to do away with the original, ambiguous ending. Before you get your knickers in a knot, know that King not only signed off on the change, he freakin' loved it. "It is the most shocking ending ever," he says, apparently having mastered the art of Trumpian overstatement, "and there should be a law passed stating that anybody who reveals the last five minutes of this film should be hung from their neck until dead."
