Critics of AMC’s Accounting Practices Won’t Stay ‘Dead’

I should have known. I thought Frank Darabont was the only person who had problems with AMC’s accounting practices and that’s obviously not the case. Apparently Robert Kirkman – the creator of The Walking Dead with artist Charlie Adlard – has relaunched his lawsuit against AMC as well, likely spurred on by the $200 million […]

Frank Darabont is Walking Dead No Longer

Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption (1994), The Mist (2007) and many others) has been engaged in a lawsuit with AMC Networks for screwing him over on profits on The Walking Dead, which he was the original showrunner, for almost two decades. Seemingly his quest for the monies he believes he’s owed has ended (assuming that […]

Damien – Trailer

Horror has been pretty good to AMC.  In 2010 they premiered The Walking Dead, one of he biggest shows on television, cable or otherwise (despite how atrociously they apparently treated Frank Darabont).  Later came the spin-off, Fear The Walking Dead, which hasn’t been a laggard in the ratings department, either.

I remain a fan of the series–after all, they haven’t got rid […]

‘The Possession’ Trailer

We want character development.  We want pathos.  And sure, we want some gore and violence accompanying […]

L.A. Noir News

According to Vulture, Frank Darabont’s “L.A. Noir” has cast Milo Ventimiglia as the lead. That being said, they still want Jon Bernthal for another role, which isn’t great news for “The Walking Dead” because Frank Darabont is known to really like working with Bernthal.

Jon Bernthal Leaving ‘The Walking Dead?’

There’s a rumor that Jon Bernthal, who plays Shane Walsh on AMC’s zombie series, is leaving the show soon.  Not unusual on the face of it, people leave television shows all the time, even successful ones. But when the show he’s supposedly to be going to, L.A. Noir, is being developed by…wait for it….Frank Darabont, […]
