Former Walking Dead Boss Frank Darabont to TNT with L.A. Noir
We know what’s next for the creative mind of Frank Darabont. Don’t know him yet? Well, I’ll bet you are familiar with his work. He has directed plenty of Stephen King adaptations, including The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, and The Mist, but most recently he was responsible for writing and directing The Walking Dead pilot. In the wake of his parting of the ways with the hit zombie TV drama, it looks like TNT, not AMC, could be the man’s new network home.
TNT has ordered up a new series called L.A. Noir. It will be based upon the John Buntin book of the same name, and NOT L.A. Noire, the video game. According to Criminal Complex, now that Darabont is no longer The Walking Dead‘s leader, he is wanted for the new series. He will write and direct the L.A. Noir pilot.
Darabont said in a recent press release that he’s passionate about this project and feels Buntin’s non-fiction book is “superb”. It will serve as the “touchstone” for the more fictitious stories the show will be telling.
L.A. Noir covers a very hot topic. It details the true to life clash during the 1940s and 1950s, between the Los Angeles Police Department and crimelord Mickey Cohen. That same conflict is at the center of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone’s October 2012 upcoming release, Gangster Squad, which puts Sean Penn in the shows of the dapper Mickey Cohen.
