I'm not typically big on posting shaky video recorded with a cellphone, but I couldn't pass up this footage of the teaser trailer for AMC's The Walking Dead, shown at yesterday's Comic-Con International presentation. Chalk it up to the use of The Walker Brothers remake of "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine (Anymore)." Plus, it's a really good teaser.
Developed by Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile), The Walking Dead is an adaptation of the long-running Image Comics series by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard.
The drama, which follows a small group of survivors in the wake of a zombie apocalypse, stars stars Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies, Jeffrey DeMunn, Laurie Holden, Steve Yeun, Emma Bell, Chandler Riggs, Michael Rooker and Norman Reedus. Yesterday, the network announced the additional members of the "survivor's camp": additional members of the “survivor’s camp”: Andrew Rothenberg as Jim; Juan Pareja as Morales; Iron E. Singleton as T-Dog; Jeryl Prescott Sales as Jacqui; Melissa McBride as Carol; and Adam Minarovich.
The Walking Dead debuts in October on AMC.
