The undead take Atlanta

Dare you not to poop if you see this in your hood
  • Dare you not to poop if you see this in your 'hood
If you see zombies staggering around Grant Park PANIC. No, don't. Crews are in town filming the new AMC series "The Walking Dead," a zombie-drama based on the eponymous series of comic books by Robert Kirkman. Series director Frank Darabont, who also directed "The Shawshank Redemption" and "The Green Mile," was interviewed recently for AMC's blog, and had some nice things to say about our fair city.

Asked how filming in Atlanta compares to filming in "more traditional" locations like Hollywood, Darabont said:

Atlanta and Georgia, all told, is proving to be brilliant for us in terms of what it has to offer, in terms of what the story needed, in terms of the variety of locations — it really is a fantastic place to shoot. It's hot as hell at the moment, so you gotta put on your, 'OK, it's going to be a hot, humid summer while we're working' hat - but once you get used to that and wear a towel on your head, you're pretty good.
