Stephen King In Talks To Write The Walking Dead
After The Walking Dead panel they hosted at C2E2 on Saturday, IGN is reporting that Stephen King may take on writing duties for at least one episode of the show's second season.
A King-written would be a great way to raise the already strong profile for The Walking Dead and it certainly makes sense given Executive Producer Frank Darabont's longstanding and prolific relationship with the author. Darabont has previously written and directed The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile and The Mist - all adaptations of Stephen King stories.
The Walking Dead will return on AMC in Fall 2011.
