Confirmed: Stephen King, Joe Hill In Talks To Write An Episode of Walking Dead

Posted by March 21, 2011 Comment

Stephen King has confirmed for Entertainment Weekly that he is in talks to co-write an episode of Walking Dead with his son Joe Hill (writer of IDW’s Locke and Key). King plus Hill plus Kirkman equals something very, very scary I’d imagine. Sounds like they’re hoping for an ep in season 2 or 3.

Dead is executive-produced by Frank Darabont, who has directed three films based on King’s work — four, if you count his 1983 short film The Woman in the Room — and King tells EW exclusively that Darabont “has expressed enthusiastic interest for season 2 or possibly 3.” Although the author is still early in negotiations, the current plan would be for King to co-write an episode with his son, Joe Hill, the author of horror novels Heart-Shaped Box and Horns.
