Add another name to the rapidly growing list of people who have signed on to experience the chaos of Frank Darabont’s small screen envisioning of the Robert Kirkman graphic novel The Walking Dead.
FEARnet reports that Darabont film regular Jeffrey DeMunn (The Mist, The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) has joined the previously announced Jon Bernthal and Andrew Lincoln in the adaptation of Image Comics’ zombie epic. No word yet on whom he will play, but stay tuned.
The Walking Dead is based on Robert Kirkman’s popular comic series. It chronicles the months and years following a zombie apocalypse. Frank Darabont is the project’s writer, director, and exec producer with Anne Hurd and David Alpert also exec producing. KNB will be handling the effects, and AMC has already ordered six episodes.
